Australia's Formula Ford Championship Will Cease To Exist In 2014
Australia's national Formula Ford championship "will cease to exist from 2014 onwards," according to AUTO SPORT. The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport said that "sustainability reviews had indicated the series was not viable in the long-term, persuading them to cease operating it from the end of the current season." State championships "will continue to run however, while CAMS is exploring alternative formats, including a Formula Ford Festival." CEO Eugene Arocca said that "rising costs and falling manufacturer support had forced CAMS to abandon a national series" that counts Mark Webber, Garth Tander and Jamie Whincup among its recent graduates (AUTO SPORT, 8/27).
