2024 Q4: NSR Formula 22

Share this page with:

Series managers: John B. (aka Lotus Jr.) with Marc T. (aka Datto)
Period: Q4 / October – December (2 rounds per month)

Modern Formula One is one of the greatest spectacles on the planet.  Twenty cars vie  for the World Championship in countries across the globe.  From the streets of Monaco, up Turn One in Austin and down the Strip in Las Vegas,  the carbon fiber monocoque chassis powered by turbocharged V6 engines turn lap times faster than any of their predecessors ever have.  Design wizards such as the legendary Adrian Newey  build race cars that are finest examples of cutting edge technology. The budgets are immense, the drivers in are paid millions and the racing is legendary.

ASCC members have good fortune to have Formula One in our own backyard just a few miles from HQ.  We have seen these cars race, were stunned by the two second pit stops and even walked the pit lane to see these incredible machines up close.  NSR has built a class of cars known as Formula 22 to replicate the modern F1 car.   This is a near spec based series with some outside gear options allowed and will be run on our road track.
