Formula 1000 has a new home in professional racing in the FRP championship, racing at iconic tracks including Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen, VIR, and more. Joining the move by FRP to SCCA Pro Racing sanctioning for the 2019 season ensures continued growth for the NorthAm F1000 Championship.
Bringing an additional racing class into the Atlantic Championship Series is an ideal fit. Atlantic and F1000 are far enough apart in speed – Roughly 5 seconds – to allow two independent races within one session. In a majority of cases the classes may never see each other on the race track.
The traditional Random Drawing prizes during the complimentary lunch will continue with cash and prizes from Hoosier Racing Tire, MPT Industries, Sunoco Race Fuels, Taylor Race Engineering, and many more. Not only ensuring all drivers continue to win cash with random drawings, F1000 drivers will earn cash in every race – in every finishing position.
Formula 1000 drivers took home over $35,000 in cash and prizes in 2018!!
Formula 1000 cars are an open design platform, allowing multiple manufacturers including JDR, Firman, Stohr, Citation, Philly Motorsports, Elan, Van Diemen, MANTAC, Photon, and Piper; with factory-stock 1000cc SuperBike engine packages from Suzuki, Kawasaki, BMW, Aprilla, and Honda.

“The past two seasons in Club Racing were a great way to create a series and build for the future, with our current level of support from fans, partners, and teams – this is an ideal time to make the move into SCCA Pro Racing, and I am excited to have the opportunity with Formula Race Promotions and the Atlantic Championship Series.”
