News From The Series — September 30, 2019
The checker has fallen on another FRP season — our 14th!
2019 saw very competitive and exciting racing throughout our primary Atlantic, F2000 & F1600 Championship run groups, as well as within our other participating series - The North American F1000 Championship, The FV Challenge Cup & the ever growing Right Coast Formula Ford group (RCFF). Without the addition of our supporting series, we would not be able to maintain the significant amount of track time that is a hallmark of FRP, so thanks to all who participate. Season results from our supporting partners can be found on their dedicated websites.
We have been working hard these past weeks to get our 2020 season set up, and it is coming together nicely!
We have an agreement in principle with Hoosier to extend their invaluable sponsorship for another multi-year program. We can’t say it enough, the great support of Hoosier Racing Tire is what makes your racing experience with FRP possible.
Terry and his team in the Hoosier tent did an exemplary job for us all season —
They were all fantastic!
2020 & Our Schedule
I have always said that scheduling is like dominoes... Basically, the premier series (IndyCar, NASCAR, IMSA) must lock their season before the rest of us can get to work.
This year the pieces have fallen together quite well and though I can not yet “publish” the schedule, we have 6 of the 7 events locked in, and I am close to locking in the location for our season finale event in September.
The 2020 Schedule is similar to the 2019 season, with a few date changes and NO back to back. Of major note, we have swapped out the Watkins Glen weekend for another venue at one of the “great tracks” that happens to be in warmer climes (and a first visit for FRP). I am sorry to let go of The Glen, but it has become too expensive, and the weather gods have had too much fun with us in recent years. As a driver, I am excited for this new venue, and I believe all of you will be as well.
More to follow on the Schedule and the specific makeup of our supporting series as details get further locked in.
