Trips to Spa Francorchamps, Zandvoort and Nurburgring top the bill in Formula Ford for 2012, after RacingLine unveiled the provisional 2012 calendars for the 2012 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain and the Formula Ford EuroCup.

The British championship will once again support the British F3 and British GT series for most the year, joining them for Oulton Park, Rockingham, Brands Hatch GP, Snetterton, Silverstone GP and Donington Park GP. The series will also join the support bill for the DTM at Brands Hatch, as well as a trip to the Nurburgring, with the season consisting of 24 races in total.

The Nurburgring and Brands Hatch GP races will also form part of the EuroCup, which will once again see the British racers joined by the best drivers from the Benelux and Scandinavian championships. The EuroCup will also have standalone events at Spa and Zandvoort, the latter in support of the F3 Masters event.

RacingLive has also confirmed that 2012, which will see the debut of the new Formula Ford Ecoboost, will once again see Formula Ford benefit from TV coverage on Channel 4 in the UK and across Europe on Motors TV.

RacingLine chief Sam Roach: “It is a great set of dates. Not only will Formula Ford support British Formula 3 at all of its six UK meetings, we will also share the stage with the DTM German touring cars at Brands Hatch, the Masters Formula 3 event at Zandvoort, and also top events at Spa and – for the first time – the Nürburgring in Germany. It is a great calendar for us and the circuits being visited will offer the young drivers taking part a suitably impressive challenge.”
