Mod Infos :

“This is my first scratch mod. The very popular SCCA Club Racing class of Spec Racer Ford. A fun, relitively easy car to drive that is (I believe) the largest class of car in SCCA.”

Beau Buisson 2008

History :

The SRF is an enclosed wheel, open cockpit, purpose built race car. Power is by a Ford 1.9 liter, hemispherical head, 4 cylinder engine. With over 800 cars delivered, the SRF enjoys being the largest class of road racing cars within the SCCA and the country. The car is raced by amateurs and pros alike at such venues as Laguna Seca, Sears Point, Road America, Watkins Glen, Road Atlanta, and many other tracks around the country.

The SRF rules dictate that no performance enhancing modifications other than suspension adjustments within described parameters can be made to the car. This effectively eliminates the never-ending need for design enhancements and associated large cash outlays necessary in other classes of racecars to remain competitive and puts the focus on driver skill, rather than financial and technical investment.

Every Spec Racer Ford weighs the same using ballast that can accommodate drivers who weigh up to roughly 225 pounds, uses the same engine, the same transmission, the same fiberglass body, the same chassis, even the same tires. The idea is that all of the cars are meant to have identical performance, so the only way to go faster is to be a better driver. The SRF’s engine, transmission, and shock absorbers are sealed with tamper-proof devices that make it impossible to modify these components undetected.

In addition, many parts of the car, including suspension arms, fiberglass, and sheet metal are marked for compliance checking with special holographic tamper-evident stickers bearing the Spec Racer Ford logo. SCCA Enterprises periodically deploys compliance officials to conduct surprise inspections of Spec Racer Fords at SCCA National and some SCCA Regional events across
the US.
