F1600: 31 Numbers Reserved for Inaugural F1600 Season
Just two weeks after initial registration opened for the first ever F1600 Formula F Championship Series in 2011, 31 drivers have already reserved numbers for what is appearing to be a massive inaugural season grid in 2011. A number of chassis are represented on the initial list, including Van Diemen, Swift, Piper, Mondiale, Citation, Bowman and Crossle.

Sixteen registrants have listed Ford Kent power, 13 have listed Honda Fit power and two remain question marks. Chassis and engine wars will be a huge storyline as the season opens at VIR, April 8 – 10.

After VIR the F1600 tour heads north to Watkins Glen with the Grand-Am Series, June 3-5. The Series opens the month of July at Mid-Ohio, June 30-July 2.  In September, it’s Lime Rock with the NASCAR Modifieds, September 16-17, and the season concludes at the highly popular Watkins Glen, October 14-16.

Series officials expect the registrations to keep flowing throughout the winter.

"This initial response certainly indicates real enthusiasm in the entrant base for this Series and we are pleasantly surprised by the numbers already registered in the two weeks since we opened registration,” said F1600 Formula F Championship Series Series Managing Director Michael Rand.

"The 2011 season looks to be a very busy one for our staff between well subscribed F2000 grids for our sixth season and new large fields for F1600 Formula F,” he added.

Ages run from Colin Thompson who will be 17-years-old by VIR to Bill Ehrlinger at 63.
