Final 2019 Heritage and Champion of Brands calendars published

Final 2019 Heritage Formula Ford and Champion of Brands calendars have been announced, with Snetterton completing the Heritage line-up and a Donington Park visit on the Champion of Brands schedule.

A provisional calendar was released last month for Heritage’s second season – and its first as a points-paying championship – with one round of the six still to be confirmed.

Snetterton, which was on the 2018 Heritage calendar but not on the provisional ’19 schedule, has been added to the final calendar for next year while Brands Hatch, which was included as the provisional season-closing round for ’19, has been dropped with the final round instead a second Donington visit.

In addition the Cadwell Park round has been moved from a provisional May slot to August 24.

It has also been confirmed that next year’s Heritage champion will win ‘The Cunningham Cup’, an award won previously by national racing favourite Neil Cunningham who lost his fight against motor neurone disease in 2016 aged just 53. As was the case in 2018, the Jim Walsh Trophy will be awarded as part of the Silverstone round.

The Champion of Brands calendar will expand from three rounds in 2018 to five next year. Due to difficulties getting an early-season Brands slot, it starts with an April ‘away day’ at Donington Park as part of the same meeting as Heritage’s curtain-raiser.

Heritage and Champion of Brands organiser James Beckett promised that Donington stop-off will be “a great Formula Ford weekend”.

The ’19 Champion of Brands schedule also includes a new feature race at the Ford Power Live event in early September while the Bert Ray Memorial Trophy will be awarded as part of the July meeting.

“Finalising the calendar for 2019 was not easy,” said Beckett, “but having listened to competitors, and with the help of MSVR, I believe we are able to issue two strong calendars for both the Champion of Brands and Heritage Formula Ford Championship.

“The Champion of Brands will enjoy an ‘away’ date in 2019! Early season dates at Brands Hatch were not available, and I felt it was very important to start the season in April.”
