B12hr: A look back at the Formula Ford support


Along with the excellent GT race at the recent Bathurst 12 Hours, there was a bunch of support races, with a huge grid of Formula Ford cars, Radicals and Modified Production.  Here we have a look at the Formula Ford race.








It wasn’t smooth sailing for all with William Powers (2), Russell Norden (10) and Elizabeth Bailey (12) coming together at the top of the Mountain. Nothing too serious but it does highlight how tight the track is and the guts that some of these drivers must have to peddle an open wheeler across the Mountain.

Thomas Tweedie leads a gaggle of cars through the final corner. This shot shows the variety of different Formula Fords were entered into the race


Tweedie was very rapid in his older style car. His Van Diemen RF86 would be battling at the front all weekend


Scott Andrews’ Spectrum was a well turned out machine


Ewan Geals was down the field in his Lola but raced cleanly all weekend


The field was huge with some 45 cars competing over the weekend


Philip Marrinon had the only Galloway in the field and wouldn’t make it through the final race

There was a huge field of Radicals at the event too. The grids were at capacity for all events, proving the popularity of this event
