"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.

Welcome to the 2024 Race Season

It sounds like 2024 is shaping up to be an exhilarating year for our club! The prospect of new members joining and contending for the Rookie of the Year award adds an extra layer of excitement. Best of luck to Ben Wilkins, Mackenzie Gow, and Maddie Matthews in their pursuit of this prestigious title.

The increased participation of female drivers, challenging the likes of April Welsh and myself for the Kay Prosser Award, is a positive development for the club. It's fantastic to see diversity and competition flourishing within the community.

The hosting of the National Challenge at CarCo.com.au Raceway and the Australian series round at Collie Motorplex in September will undoubtedly be major highlights. These events are sure to test the skills of our members and provide thrilling moments for both participants and spectators alike.

The first tuning day of the year, which will be WASCC’s “The Warm Up Lap” season opener will be on Saturday the 3rd February but If you can’t make that one, there are two other tuning days coming up to shake out the cobwebs on Saturday, 24th February or Friday, 1st March before we are racing again.

The Gerry Prosser memorial plate race on Saturday, 2nd March at Wanneroo promises to be a significant occasion, so don't forget to renew your FVAWA membership before then.

For those interested in showcasing their club spirit, the new FVAWA club shirts are available. Reach out to Brett to check if your size is in stock.

The National BOM committee is working hard to finalize the dates for the 2024 Australian Series rounds. I will be sending the calendar out as soon as it’s confirmed.

Here's to a fantastic 2024 season full of exciting races, camaraderie, and memorable moments on the track. Best wishes to all members, and may the year ahead be a roaring success for FVAWA!
