    Good idea CROWIE :thumbsu: I don't think Rodney is related to Greg. I suppose the article would've mentioned it, if he was. RIP champ.

    ****! On a night with the Essendon thing, it's taken some big motorsport news to get my attention off it. The Australian Formula Ford Championship is to be axed! :eek:

    http://www.speedcafe.com/2013/08/27/australian-formula-ford-championship-to-be-axed/

    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/109521

    When you think about it, it's not surprising. FFord, aside from being a class for young, up and coming drivers, is also there for privateers. In the last 10-15 years,

    - The inclusion of teams using the class as a stepping stone to higher classes (like Sonic :thumbsdown:)
    - V8 teams funding younger drivers to compete in the class (FPR with Winterbottom, HRT with Percat) :thumbsdown:
    - Being a part of the money sucking V8sc class :thumbsdown:
    - Unnecessary classes being introduced into Australia (Carrera Cup) :thumbsdown:
    - V8sc taking sponsors :thumbsdown:
    -Being forced to pay for tv :thumbsdown:
    -FFord unnecessarily upgrading to modern engines and technology :thumbsdown:

    All of it has led from fford being a inexpensive class, but relatively inexpensive for car racing, into a class that can be called semi-professional and driving costs through the roof and into the stratosphere. I watch these things at PI, and for a little, 4 cylinder, 1.6 engine to be about 4 seconds a lap slower than a V8sc, is insane and unecessary. Hopefully it'll lead to a review in the specs and return to a genuine fford class.
