This is the formula for you if you are aged between 11 and 16 years old. Ideal for secondary schools, youth groups and privateers.
Teams have to compete in at least one regional heat and finish in the top three to automatically qualify for the International Final held in October at Rockingham Motor Speedway. The rest of the 75 strong grid is filled with those cars that have completed the most miles in any one race with three wild cards thrown in for good measure.
The events involve 2 x 90 minute races at some of the best motorsport venues in the UK. Check out the race diary to see what’s happening near you. The format allows a two hour break between F24 races during which the F24+ race are held (where applicable), and during this period teams will be free to make changes to their cars as a result of experiences in the first race but crucially this will also be the time when F24 cars are judged for supplementary awards. There will be top three trophies awarded for both races at every event plus an overall winner at the International Finals.
All teams have the same motor and one pair of 12 volt batteries per race. During the race at least three three team members must drive the car, and up to six further members can act as pit crew. Drivers may only drive for one car and for one team and each driver must drive for a minimum of 15 minutes.
Other than the motor and batteries you are free to design a car from your own imagination, or build one of the fantastic kit cars. All cars must follow a set of strict regulations but you’ll be amazed at the variety of designs sitting on the grid before a race.
There is a entry fee of £80 +VAT per event for IET Formula 24 teams.
