Membership:

The "Historic Formula Atlantic Association" has had a very busy Easter weekend catching up with all the responses to our latest press release.

"General enquiries and requests for membership forms are coming in from all over North America", said Bill Brack, "people who drove in the Series, crew members, even people currently working with the Toyota Atlantic Series 2004 race programme".

"The goal of creating a central depositary of Formula Atlantic history, is becoming more than just an idea, as a lot of the replies we have received contain offers of sending us photographs and memorabilia for our future web site", stated Brack. "That is one of the most important challenges we have to overcome. We know that photos and stories are out there, we just have to get in touch with the people who have them".

"Our biggest hurdle right now is to get our membership programme well and truly on it's way, in order to buy equipment, computers, scanners, etc, that we require for the processing of information, both for our race events programme and the web site." Concluded Bill Brack.

The HFAA is now actively looking for drivers and cars for their first race at the "Grand Prix du Trois-Rivieres" on 1st August , 2004. Interested parties should contact the HFAA by e-mail, or phone as listed below.
