FR Americas Championship Introduces Masters Cup Contingency

SCCA Pro Racing and its Formula Regional Americas partners redefine Formula Atlantic racing

The debut of the FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda introduced the next generation chassis for the Formula Atlantic class in SCCA Road Racing competition. In an effort to attract drivers who are looking to maximize their racing opportunities with a cost-effective competition package that doesn’t sacrifice safety, speed or style, the FR Americas program developed a new contingency program targeted to drivers age 35 and over.

With more than $5,000 in cash and prizes available, the Masters Cup contingency package will award top drivers who are at least 35 years old with cash prizes at each event. The Masters Cup points-leading driver at the end of the season will receive the Masters Cup Champion contingency prize package.

“The Ligier JS F3 chassis is a fantastic opportunity for drivers to not only participate with the FR Americas Championship, but continue racing with Formula Race Promotions or run at the SCCA Road Racing regional or national level.” Sydney Davis Yagel, SCCA Pro Racing General Manager said. “Our goal with the Masters Cup is to provide a platform for drivers to get the most out of their investment by giving them multiple on-track participation opportunities.”

Eligible FR Americas Masters Cup drivers will automatically be entered in to the program when applying for an FR Americas license. Being a Masters Cup driver does not exclude competitors from FR Americas Championship event podiums and payouts as long as they comply with all the current FR Americas Sporting Regulations.  

The top-five finishing Masters of each race will be awarded contingency points. After the final race of the weekend, the top driver will be awarded Masters Cup contingency award during the final victory podium celebration, receiving a $500 cash prize.

The SCCA National Championship Runoffs will offer Masters Cup drivers another opportunity to compete in their Ligier JS F3 race cars. Drivers can use two of their FR Americas starts to count toward qualification for the National Championship event at Road America. A top three finish at the Runoffs qualifies drivers for additional contingency awards from SCCA Pro Racing and its FR 

Americas partners.
