Formula 2000 National Championship

Alpha Raceway in Fond du Lac Wisconsin welcomed racers from around the Midwest for the 4th annual Formula 2000 National Championship. Formula 2000 racing is wing car racing on a spray-glued track. There are minimum weights for the cars, no motor changing is allowed, and the motors have single magnets only. Excellent racing was the order of the day with close, exciting finishes in several classes.

Al Harley was the star of the day taking both Pro 27 and Group 7. But Jim Mayer nearly got Al in Pro 27, (missing by one lap) and was really the only one able to keep pace with Harley in Group 7. Al opened an 18-lap lead after 2 segments of the Group 7 race. Jim came charging back to take a 5 lap lead in the third, and held that 5 lap lead a halfway. But when Jim had accident induced mechanical problems, it was an easy cruise for Harley to notch his first Formula 2000 National Group 7 title.

Our Formula 2000 committee will be meeting in July to make plans for next year’s championship as well as the 2005 series. The 2005 Formula 2000 championship race date and location are not set, but with a new entry level class (Spec 15) and an expanded series (new tracks). A good thing will be getting better.


A final thank you for our sponsors whose generous support helped make the race possible….
