Pre-amble

Wing car racing has come to the fork in the road. 1900's, the traveled path to glue racing with all its intricacies that is alive and well for all that want to travel it. For the rest there is a new path to foll ow, "Formula 2000". Why the new path you ask, quoting Alpha>>>"For many years now, racers who have demonstrated an insatiable lust for speed have written the slot racing rules. Many of us, who have watched all of this going on feel that the rules, have gone "over the wall". High powered tracks which can destroy $250 motors in seconds, $200 set-ups with 6,8 and more magnets, $20 hollow axles, weak (throw away) aluminum chassis, expert drivers ra cing in every class, and the need for lots and lots of motors exemplify what is wrong with modern Wing Car Racing. Mostly because of these things, I think the number of racers has dwindled. I believe the time has come to make some drastic changes in the w ay races are run. FORMULA 2000 rules address these things and provides close, exciting, affordable racing. And it puts wing car racing within the reach of many who have considered it too expensive, and time consuming".

Features of FORMULA 2000:

(Based on info provided by Alpha & Wing Ding Fling)

Spray Glue racing allows for shorter race duration and more racing in a day. Motor and equipment ware & tare is minimal, tire availability is better.

Full-scale racing is one motor racing. One motor makes racing interesting and unpredictable and drastically reduces cost. If the motor breaks, the car drops out of competition. Making the motor strong enough to run till the end is one of the essential challenges of motor racing.

All forms of racing have minimum weights for the vehicles. This is to contain costs and to stabilize the rules so that equipment is not obsolete as soon as it is purchased. FORMULA 2000 weight limits have been chosen to allow most existing equipment to run with little or no modification. Specifically to allow steel chassis to be competitive on all tracks.

Two magnet motors and solid steel axles are common sense. This will reduce costs and make the cars more durable.

Qualifying is not required for series racing. This will allow for more racing in a day and removes the need for costly equipment.

The above limits will make each class competitive. The racer's budget and affiliation will not determine the racer's success. Success will be based on skill, attention to detail and time spent on preparation and development of the equipment.

FORMULA 2000 rules allow progression of the drivers when the racer desires. If racers want to go faster they can use the same basic equipment for another class with minimal cost for upgrades.

FORMULA 2000 will encourage friendly competition and sharing of knowledge to better racing over all.
