"Revving Up Dreams: Formula Vee's Affordable Racing Pathway"

Formula Vee serves as a stepping stone for young drivers aiming to move up the racing ladder and a budget friendly choice for experienced racers. The grids feature a mix of young Karting graduates and seasoned drivers seeking affordability and competitiveness.

"Dreaming in the Fast Lane: From Karting to Formula Vee at 14!"

You’ve admired racing legends like Lowndes, Webber, Brock, Hamilton, and Alonso on TV
forever. Whether studying F1, V8s, or racing techniques, you’ve dreamt of surpassing them.
Perhaps youve karted since age 8, and at 14, it’s time to step into Formula Vee!

"Photo Finish: The Thrilling Race to the Chequered Flag!"

“It’s not uncommon for half a dozen or more cars to take the chequered flag within a second…”

Want to go racing or get involved with racing cars?

Why motor racing? There’s no denying the adrenalin rush, where else can you put your foot to the floor? You certainly can’t speed on the roads. Most people may regard racers as rev heads and hoons but in truth, to be successful most racers are ten times more responsible than the average road driver. It can be dangerous out there. A quote from the WASCC’s ‘Need for Speed’ brochure sums it up. “Motor racing offers excitement and satisfaction simply unavailable in other pastimes, a unique blend of technical challenge, mental ability and physical skills combined in the competitive package of car and driver”.

Surprisingly inexpensive! It costs a lot less than you might think. A good 1200, race ready car, can be bought for $10,000 or less, a 1600 from around $15,000. A year’s budget can be less than $5000. Check out the Formula Vee Handbook on the resources page and the Classifieds for available cars.

If you’ve never seen Vees race, get along to Barbagallo and watch the racing. Walk around the paddock, have a look at the cars, talk to the drivers. There’s nothing they like more than talking about their cars and the racing.

LIVE YOUR DREAMS

Named after its use of Volkswagen components, Formula Vee is recognised by the Australian motor sport governing body, CAMS, as the entry-level open-wheeler circuit competition. Strictly controlled car specifications place greater emphasis on driver skill rather than budget and mechanical aptitude. As a result, it is a learning class and a stepping-stone into higher levels of motor sport. Larry Perkins, John Bowe, Colin Bond, Cameron McConville, Jason Bargwanna and Paul Stokell all began their careers in Formula Vee.

What a start to 2024! We had 15 drivers entered for the Gerry Prosser Memorial race day and the Giant Mandurah Formula Vee season opener on Saturday, 2nd March.
It's notable that despite the small field of 15 drivers at the start of the year, the presence of three new rookie drivers added an exciting dimension to the racing event. The inclusion of these newcomers not only indicates growth in the racing community but also brings fresh talent and enthusiasm to the competition. It's always promising to see new faces making their race debuts, contributing to the diversity and vibrancy of the racing scene.
Our newest 1600 driver, Maddie Matthews had a solid day and finished a very impressive fourth.
Mackenzie Gow, in the 1200 category, kept her racing clean and had a good day to finish sixth. She also had the most pit crew and supporters for the day even out doing the Welsh and Scarey families for once.
The newest Scarey racing family member, Isaac Scarey had a tough first race day with several mechanical issues and only scored points in the first race but we are all sure once these issues are sorted, he’s going to be a tough competitor.
Jonathan Scarey also had issues with his car and missed race 1 but was able to repair the car and get back out there for the next two races and score valuable championship points.
Callum Lamont battled it out all day in amongst the Lockett’s and the Welsh’s to take home 3rd place in the 1200 category.
The Welsh family had three members out on track. Bruce and April battled it out to finish fourth and fifth in the 1200’s for the day. Connor Welsh had a tough day with a myriad of mechanical issues and a trip into the dirt on turn 1 in race 3.
Running in his new engine and working out the kinks, Vini Paduano finished fifth for the day in the 1600 category after a DNF in race 3.
Rod Lisson unfortunately had a coming together with Mason Legg in the last lap of race 2 and was out for the rest of the day. One person, Kathy Lisson, took advantage of the chaos and swept through to take the chequered flag. Her first 1600 race win and some have said the very first female in Australia to win a 1600 race, also took home the 1600 second place trophy for the day.
Mason kept his car together despite the heavy impact with Rod Lisson in race 2 to finish the day in 3rd place in the 1600’s.
Paul Moltoni was able to take home the first place honours and 1600 Gerry Prosser Memorial plate, after some tough competition from the front runners.
Myles Locket was kicking himself for entering his son, Andrew Lockett who won all three 1200 races and took home the coveted 1200 Gerry Prosser Memorial plate. Leaving Myles to take home second place in the 1200’s for the day.
A special thanks to Sarah Paduano for capturing the moments with photos and videos from the day.
Of course, the day was all about remembering Gerry Prosser who was a cherished and dearly missed member of the FVAWA family. Gerry played a significant role in the FVAWA community, being a part of it since the club’s inception in the early 90’s. Gerry’s contributions, both in terms of mechanical expertise and support of fellow club members, have left a lasting legacy. Being able to dedicate a race in his honor pays tribute to his memory and also ensures that his spirit and influence continue to be felt within the FVAWA community.
Overall, it was a great race day filled with excitement, challengers and notable achievements.
