Formula TR PRO Series Opens Season

The 2007 Formula TR PRO Series with its Formula Renault 1600 and Formula Renault 2000 Championships is set to begin the season this weekend at California Speedway with rounds 1 & 2 of the 10 weekend, 20 race series. The host for the weekend, the Vintage Auto Racing Association (VARA), has made it quite special. Formula TR will be part of the

Route 66 Classic Formula Festival with vintage CHAMP/Indy cars, over 100 Model A's and T's at the event along with VARA's special guest for the weekend Al Unser Sr. Formula TR is a driver development series that uses the world's largest and longest lived development platform, the Formula Renault.

The formula is stable and the safety is unprecedented. Alumni of the Formula TR series include the rising stars of motor sport, Marco Andretti, Michael McDowell, Brad Coleman, Colin Braun, Darryl O'Young, Adrien Herberts and Adrian (Ace) Carrio.

This is a clear demonstration that the concept of early driver development in a competitive environment not only works but it works very well. The series enjoys the sponsorship of Gatorz, precision tuned eyewear, and Yokohama Tires. The series is sanctioned by the National Auto Sport Association, the fastest growing racing organization in the US.
