Well decided next year to end my 35 year sabbatical ambitions as a F1 driver and to go for it
Anyhow decided to start at grass root level and wait to be spotted - I give you my Formula Ford project which I intend to race in Historics next year

Keep posting pics of the progress…
Cracking project Simon - look forward to following it
Fantastic Simon, good luck buddy
Awesome, well done, hope to do some of this myself In a 2000 , is it still the URS series ?
Yes URS are still sponsoring FF2000 series - off down to URS next week to pick up new suspension and some other missing bits.
Chassis tub now rebuilt - powdercoated with painted side panels - stunning job they have made
Just had all wishbones powdercoated - will post some update pics once I have the suspension fitted…
Yeah keep us updated , my dad raced in URS FF2000 for a few years when he started out before classic F1 , he still says they are the best times hes had in motorsport with the nicest people you could meet .
Yep FF has some great peeps, esp the older chaps who are just in it for fun with a bit of competitive edge
Classic F1 - brilliant what did your pops race?
He used to race in TGP in a Mansell Lotus 92 for a number of years , then he raced with Clienti in a 642 Ferrari Prost car , he only demos now with his FW18 Damon Hill Williams and is just in the process of rebuilding two Minardis, a M189 and a M198 .
Pic of him back in the FF2000 days
Absolutely fantastic - is that a Van Diemen FF2000 RF82?
I really would love to view his cars - absolutely mega
Yeah I’m pretty sure it was an 82 , really want one badly , maybe next year and race the year after getting the msa done .
Hats off to you for doing it , would love to have a go !
This pic was taken week or two ago of the Minardi M189 , very close to being finished , full years worth of nutt & bolt rebuild and new DFR engine to original spec , all better than new .
Thought you might like
It’s doo-able - go for it
Just sold one of my precious Lotus cars to help finance next year’s racing
Whoa - that is so brilliant
