The FFDA board created a fund that will rescue Formula FST's to prevent them from becoming garage queens or worse. We believe that race cars should be on the race track. We're trying to make that happen!
Since the board doesn't want to own these cars none will be kept by us more than six months. None will be rented. No "rent to own" offers will be considered either. We want the cars in the hands of racers. We will only buy race ready cars with a known pedigree. Only pay market rate for the car thus helping to control asking prices. We will make no profit but we pass on the necessary expense to a new buyer such as up-to-date belts and other costs.
1.Get more people actively racing in FST has been a point of discussion from day one. One of the stumbling blocks has been the lack of available, race ready cars. While a few are interested in talking about conversions, that hasn’t gone very far lately. The fact is the majority of people who want to buy cars, want race ready. They are not interested in cars that need a rebuild, restoration, or in some case resurrection. After viewing what is available in FST,we need to increase that number. If we hope to grow the class, we need to have cars.
2. We need help from the current FST drivers to identify both potential cars and drivers. The drivers we are looking for want to race and are willing to spend the time and money to race at least 3 (preferably 4) of our events annually. Racing is not cheap, but FST is as reasonable as it gets, they have to understand the finances of the game and still want to play. We also need to identify good cars that have been sitting, that we might be able to purchase. We aren’t interested in “low balling” people, but we know the market and the value the market puts on these cars.
3.Finally, we might need some help with transportation, picking up these cars and maybe even preforming some basic work to get them track and sale ready.
4.This is a group effort; I think it can be successful.
Our first committee buy, the ex Butch Deer Evolution. This car has already been purchased, turned over to new owners and will be entered in the 2021 Hoosier Tire series.
Our second purchase is the ex Bill Grey Nuveau Autosports Evolution. This car was the last Evolution made and has only been in three actual races in its lifetime. Truly a a new race car. The car Number 55 above is shown participating in its second race at Gingerman.
