Formula Ford Teams Put New Car To Test At Brands

1 Mins read

Pre-Season testing ahead of the 2013 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain gathered pace last week, with several teams putting the new Formula Ford EcoBoost 200 chassis through its paces at Brands Hatch.

Series newcomers Camren Kaminsky and Harrison Scott were running with JTR and Falcon Motorsport respectively, while Jamun Racing were also out with two new signings.

Also lapping was JTR’s Nick Tandy, the former series front-runner providing valuable benchmark data for the Ford Racing engineers.

“It was a very positive test,” said Tandy. “The car surprised me – there was more downforce in the higher-speed corners than I was expecting, which meant more grip and allowed later braking, but in the lower-speed corners the car felt very like the previous generation of Formula Ford.”

“It’s very pleasing to have beaten the weather and gained two valuable days worth of track data before the end of February. It means that the Formula Ford teams are getting well ahead of the game, given that there is still well over a month to go before the first rounds of the championship,” added Sam Roach, Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship manager.
