Welcome to the Lotus Formula Ford Register!
After another round of difficulties with our web host provider it appears that we are able to update again!!!! Ownership and photos are being updated!
We've created a group on Facebook for the "Lotus Formula Ford Register" (search on the quoted text) and ask to join. Lot of great photos posting, already!
50th Anniversary of Formula For in the USA
March 23, 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of Formula Ford Racing in the USA. The LFFR is contemplating a reunion to mark this 50th Anniversary... the burning question is where? ...or do we try to do a number of regional get togethers? The Big One will be at Road America in September. Many LFFR members are already pre-registered for this event. Let's talk it up on Facebook ot the Yahoo Group and put something together. Remember- it was a Lotus 51 that won that 1st race at Willow Springs International Raceway, with Jules Williams at the wheel. That Lotus 51 will be making the rounds this year. Come out and join it and the LFFR cars.

The Lotus Formula Ford Register is affiliated with the Historic Lotus Register, in the UK. The LFFR will be registering Lotus Formula Fords and providing technical information for both organizations. The Historic Lotus Register provides a very slick and informative magazine to its membership. I thoroughly recommend a membership in the HLR, if just for the magazine. I have about six of the issues of their Historic Lotus magazine and am duly impressed with the content, photos and print quality. The HLR promises Lotus Formula Ford content in upcoming issues. Please click on the HLR logo to the right to visit the HLR website. Membership information can be found at: http://www.historiclotusregister.co.uk/membership/membership.htm
Yahoo Discussion Group
A Yahoo Group has be formed to facilitate communications and information exchange among the LFFR membership at: http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/lffr/. The group is open to anyone with an interest in the Lotus Formula Fords.
One of the strengths of the LFFR has been the active participation of the members. The LFFR NEEDS YOUR INPUT! Please send us letters to the editor, articles, and race reports via email or snail mail but send them. Articles on discoveries, restorations, and unearthed histories are welcome. If you have any ideas for the site or for the Bulletin, please feel free to write, call or e-mail.
