ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (June 5, 2002) -- The Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship today announced that for the remainder of the 2002 season their will be no entry fee for American Continental Championship entrants.
Introduced in 1999, the ACC is a "series within-a-series" for club racers seeking professional race experience on a limited budget. Beginning in 2002, the class is eligible to all F2000 cars continuing to use the Pinto engine package.
The 10-race ACC season has six races remaining on some of North America's premier racetracks, the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Road Atlanta and Virginia International Raceway. Racing simultaneously with the Zetec Championship, the ACC cars will race in support of the American Le Man Series, CART FedEx Championship and SCCA Pro Racing.
In addition to free entry fees, the following race prize fund has been announced. The ACC race winner will receive $1000, second place will receive $750 and third place will receive $500 at the remaining races in 2002.
"The goal of the ACC class has always been to allow drivers with a limited to budget to come race in the pro series," said Jon Baytos, owner of the Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship. "By eliminating the entry fee, we believe more drivers will have the opportunity to take part in the Zetec Championship."
