2014 Schedule Announced for Eleventh Season

The eleventh season of the Pacific Formula F1600/F2000 Championship gets under way in January as the 2014 schedule has been announced. After a successful 15 race season in 2013 which saw the growth of the Formula 1600 class, the series will focus on the SCCA Majors Tour events. The series has announced a nine race schedule to be run exclusively with the SCCA as it seeks to qualify participants for the Runoffs to be held at Laguna Seca. This will be the first west coast appearance of the Runoffs in over twenty years.

The series is boasting a $25,000 prize fund for this year and is looking for increased participation coming from Majors Tour drivers seeking a Runoffs opportunity. Series enrollment is required as qualification for prizes from the series and its sponsors.

The cars will be governed by the SCCA GCR, which opens up the rules regarding, aero, gears, tires, etc., allowing various modifications not previously available, although Buttonwillow Raceway is the tire dealer for the series and all participants must purchase tires through them.

The series will not have its own run group as in the past and will run in the groups established by the hosting region who will also handle individual race entries.

The first event of the season will be held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana will be a Double Major race weekend and held under the Cal Club banner on January 17-19, 2014.

Following the season opener, the series moves on to Buttonwillow Raceway (Double Major, April 26 & 27), Portland International Raceway (Double Major, July 4-6), Laguna Seca (Double Regional, September 12-14) and concludes at Laguna Seca with a single event at the SCCA National Runoffs (October 6-12). The concluding event, in addition to being part of the Runoffs will be a double points race to crown the 2014 series champions. In addition, the series will have Expert (F1600 & F2000) and Master (F2000) class champions.

The combination of the Pacific Formula F1600/F2000 Championship Series and the SCCA National Runoffs promises to provide the best open wheel racing on the west coast.

Series sponsors include VP Racing fuels, Bob Schaefer and Sierra Tire in Las Vegas, Porterfield Brakes, Wine Country Motorsports, Aerocraft Fiberglass & Design, Buttonwillow Raceway Park and a special thank you to Honda Performance Development for their continued support of the Formula F1600 Class.
