Formula Ford Festival
Brands Hatch (Indy)
Saturday 22 - Sunday 23 October 2016

The world-famous festival celebrates its 45th running in 2016 and the list of winners reads like a who's who of motorsport. Current F1 star Jenson Button is included in this illustrious roll-call, alongside Johnny Herbert, Eddie Irvine and Anthony Davidson.

The Festival was inaugurated soon after the formula was created, which has long been seen as the natural stepping stone from karting into single seaters. Bereft of wings, the cars promote superb racing and the Festival's 'winner takes all' format guarantees great action.

This year's festival will once again shine the spotlight on the Kent-engined variety, following the revival of this tradition last season. The Kent engined cars remain popular as showcased by the Champion of Brands events that have taken place throughout the year, so expect a large entry for the biggest Formula Ford meeting of the year.
