If you're talking about the new SCCA spec sports racer, it won't have it's own class next year unless you run the Pro series. That's a huge jump from track events in a street car. Locally it will probably run as a CSR, where theoretically it would not be competitive, but I've seen very few CSR racers so you'd probably do fine. Info on the car is at [url="http://www.scca-enterprises.com/formula_sportsracer.html"]http://www.scca-enterprises.com/formula_sportsracer.html[/URL]
You might want to consider renting a ride in a spec racer ford for a couple events and see how you like it. For sure it would be a good idea to rent a ride to get your competition license.
The east coast pro series for the formula car starts with a double event at VIR April 26-27. Next is a double at Beaver Run the next weekend. Lime Rock and Mosport are also tentatively on the calendar. Not sure what else. My guess is the sports racer will have the same schedule if there is enough interest.
