To mark the 50th Anniversary of the birth of Formula 5000 — initially Formula A — the Formula 5000 Drivers Association has announced a four-race 2018 schedule that will visit three classic North American circuits that were part of the original professional series during its all-too-brief life between 1968 and 1976.
“As Formula 5000 reaches its 50th Anniversary in 2018, I am thrilled to be able to announce a season of racing events at three of North America’s best race tracks where F5000 cars competed from 1968 to 1976,” said Seb Coppola, Formula 5000 Drivers Association president. “The Formula 5000 Association is very pleased to brings its Revival Race Series to these historic tracks in 2018 to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of F5000 race history. So far, more than 50 drivers/cars have expressed an interest to participate, including participants from Australia, England and New Zealand.”
The 2018 schedule:
June 14-17 – VARAC Vintage Grand Prix – Mosport
July 19-22 – Weather Tech Challenge with Brian Redman – Road America
