From its inception, Formula Ford has focused on creating a level playing field for competitors through regulation of technical aspects of the cars as well as cost containment to make Formula Ford racing available to as many as possible.

It is very important that you understand the technical regulations as vehicles are regularly inspected at race meetings to ensure that they comply to the regulations.

Technical regulations are monitored by the FFA and rewritten as required to ensure the spirit of Formula Ford is upheld.

Formula Ford category (Fiesta/Duratec engine) technical regulations

Formula Ford 1600 category (Kent engine) technical regulations


Kent engines in FF1600 cars use a control camshaft.

New and reground control camshafts are obtained via the FFA, which records all camshafts used in the category.

To obtain a new control camshaft, or have your existing control camshaft reground, complete and send the Application for Control Camshaft form (242kb) to FFA administration. If you need your camshaft reground, the FFA Administrator will advise you where to send it.


All categories of Formula Ford have a controlled tyre in order to maintain equality and costs.

The Formula Ford Association is proud to partner with both Yokohama (Formula Ford & Formula Ford 1600 contemporary class) and Avon ACB 9 A29 (Historic class) and their distributors.

These tyres have proven to be of great quality with nationwide availability.
