Formula Enterprise Car

Compete with your driving skills, not your wallet.

The Formula Enterprise car, with its raised nose, side pods and multi-plane wings has a Formula One look.  The pushrod-type suspension, sequential gear box and wide wheels give the car an Indy Car feel. With sealed engines, spec transmissions, shocks, tires and brakes, the formula puts emphasis on driving ability and preparation.

FREIGHT

Freight rates and fees are estimated to be $2,400 to $3,500 by sea and land, depending on the delivery zip code. Freight time is estimated at 5 to 6 weeks. Pick-ups at Enterprises can be arranged but sales tax may be a consideration.

DELIVERY

Production rate is six plus cars per month. Some assembly will be required, as the engine will not be mounted to the chassis and the corners will require reinstallation after shipment. Engine plumbing and electronics will need to be installed. This chassis comes partially assembled but we recommend full disassembly and final assembly and inspection be performed before driving.


WHY THESE CARS NOW?

Driver skill and cost containment is the focal point. An entry-level car with minimal adjustments, sealed engines, set horsepower, and equal traction along with a truly high-tech presentation. Controlled through standardized components, drive train, adjustments and tires. The car is designed for the up-and-coming new driver as well as the current member looking for low budget competition. The level playing field of controlled competition allows the driver to showcase his or her true ability in a “drivers class” while maintaining costs. Implementation of this program has the potential of being even more successful for the SCCA racing members then the highly successful Spec Racer Ford program. The Sports Car Club of America and SCCA Enterprises plan to continue full support of the Spec Racer class and automobiles indefinitely.

VAN DIEMEN / ENTERPRISES VENTURE

Enterprises and Van Diemen are very pleased to have joined forces. With chassis production by Van Diemen and engine, distribution, compliance and stewardship by Enterprises, this is a winning combination. This is a 20-year partnership between Van Diemen and Enterprises. The Mazda 2.3-Liter is one of the newest engines available with a production life of 14 plus years. The car is state-of-the-art with solid cost controls. The car will run and be supported by SCCA and Enterprises for many years to come.

CLASS

The Competition Board has placed the formula car in Formula Atlantic and the Sports Racer in C Sports Racer. Both cars must follow GCR requirements before the Competition Board will consider assigning either car it’s own class. Expectations are that the formula car will have its own class within two years with the sports racer taking longer.

COLOR

Body panels come in eight colors: white; dark blue; bright blue; dark red; bright red; yellow; green; and black. Color may be specified at the time of chassis order. Color is the gel coat, not paint.
