Formula Continental

Formula Continental winner at 2010 SCCA National Championship Runoffs

Formula Continental is a single seater, open wheel racing class in motorsport. It replaced Formula C as an SCCA racing class. Formula Continental includes three types of cars.

The first are the traditional 1100cc Formula C cars (which have large wings, are allowed aerodynamic tunnels, and full race engines).

The second type is the Formula Ford 2000 (FF2000), which is a flat bottomed, steel tube frame open wheel car with smaller wings and a 2 litre engine derived from the steel blocked Ford Pinto or Ford Zetec engine.

The third type is the air-cooled variant of the Formula Super Vee, which used a 1600cc Volkswagen engine.

Currently, the vast majority of Formula Continental entrants are FF2000 cars.
