Hoosier Racing Tire returns to US Formula 1000 Championship as Title Sponsor

e
Fremont Ca/Green Bay, WI (March 31, 2014) – Hoosier Racing Tire returns to the US Formula 1000 Championship in a three year agreement as title sponsor that will see the Championship renamed as The Hoosier Tire US Formula 1000 Championship.

The agreement calls for both cash and contingency prizes to be awarded at each race event with cash prize payouts to be announced at a later date.  Per-race contingency prizes will remain as they were in 2013 with 20 tires awarded per weekend as long as there are a minimum of 10 entries per race.

Per-race contingency prizes are as follows: First Place-4 tires, Second Place-2 tires, Third Place-1 tire. Pole position winner receives one tire.  There will also be two tires awarded in a random drawing among non-podium finishers at each race.

If there are less than 10 cars entered the tire contingency award will be 10 tires per weekend with contingency awarded as follows: First Place-2 tires, Second Place-1 tire. Pole position winner receives one tire.  There will also be two tires awarded in a random drawing among non-podium finishers at each race.

As in 2013, the overall 2014 US Formula 1000 Championship driver will win a tire program from Hoosier for the 2015 season. Should the 2014 champion also win the SCCA National Runoffs in FB the national championship prize will take precedent.

As part of this agreement, Hoosier tire will be the only tire permitted but any Hoosier size and compound can be used in 2014.  To help reduce costs to competitors, Hoosier has agreed to work with the series admins and drivers to develop a spec tire for 2015 and 2016.

To be eligible for the Hoosier Tire contingency award and cash prizes drivers must be registered with the series and display both a Hoosier patch on their uniform and three Hoosier decals on their car in locations to be specified by the series.

Round 1&2 East Championship -Road Atlanta Race Report Posted

(March 22-23) Round 1 of the Hoosier Tire US Formula 1000 Championship East kicked off on Friday with the first of three qualifying sessions. Pre-race favorite Glenn Cooper had just finished rebuilding his RFR after a brutal crash at last year’s Runoffs and was still sorting through some handling issues. This prevented him from making a run for pole position and it wasn’t until the 3rd qualifier that he was able to dial in the car enough to put it on the front row. Throughout qualifying, Jason Slahor maintained the fastest time and nobody was able to knock him off the pole.

ETE REMAN TO BACK US FORMULA 1000 AT ROAD AMERICA

e

Rounds 7 and 8 of the US Formula 1000 Championship East got yet another prize boost with announcement of backing from ETE Reman. With a goal of increasing entries, getting more cars on the grid, and rewarding more of the drivers, ETE Reman has offered up a tiered cash prize package worth up to $2,000! Of course, the winner will get the largest portion of the prize but the remainder of the payout will be distributed to the top 4th, 5th, and 6th place drivers of the weekend. Here’s the catch, if 15 cars or more start each race, the payout will expand to the 7th and 8th place finishers and payouts will double! Meaning there will be payouts made for each race, rather than the points accumulated from the entire weekend. According to ETE Reman Vice President of Manufacturing and US Formula 1000 driver Lawrence Loshak, “I want to help this awesome growing series by getting more drivers to show up to the June Sprints, it’s an awesome event and a preview of the Runoffs. We’re going to try to do that by awarding more drivers than the classic awards to the top three finishers”.


ETE Reman is also extending special discounts for all USF1000 series competitors, friends and family for their automatic transmission needs. “If our tow vehicles weren’t enough to worry about, we all have our cars that get us to our jobs on Monday morning. And when you need a high quality transmission fast, ETE Reman can ship it right to the address you prefer in a matter of 2-3 days across the entire USA.”


Rounds 7 and 8 of the US Formula 1000 Championship East are held in conjunction with the Chicago Region June Sprints at Road America on June 14th through June 16th. To be eligible for prizes, drivers must be registered with the US Formula 1000 Championship East and wear 2 provided ETE Reman logos on their race cars, 1 on each side.


You can register for the June Sprints here:

IMPORTANT! Online registration closes on June 6! After that day, you can still enter but there will be a late fee.
Help us get to 15 cars so the prize purse increases!

US Formula 1000 Championship Announces Points Structure

e

Fremont, California/Green Bay, Wisconsin (Jan 29, 2012) - The US Formula 1000 Championship has announced its point structure for 2013. The point structure is planned to be similar to the points payout used in the SCCA Majors Races with drivers earning points based on finishing positions from 1st down to 20th place. The US Formula 1000 Championship will differ from the SCCA Majors in two ways: It will also award two additional points for each pole position, and the September season finale at Road America will be worth double points.

The US Formula 1000 East and West Championships will each consist of five double race events (10 total) with an additional race added to determine the overall US Formula 1000 Championship. Drivers competing for either the US Formula 1000 East Championship or the US Formula 1000 West Championship will count their best 8 results from their series 10 races to determine the East or West driver's champion.

For the nationwide US Formula 1000 Championship, drivers will count their best 8 results from their respective championships, then add the double points for their finish in the Championship race (Race 11) to determine their total season points to decide the overall US Formula 1000 Driver's Champion. In the event of a points tie the champion will be determined by the driver with the maximum number of wins, then most second place finishes, most third place finishes, 4th, 5th, etc. until a champion is determined. The driver winning the overall US Formula 1000 championship must attend and take the green flag in the championship race (Race 11).
