For several decades, Formula Atlantic—and Formula B before it—was the top “training category” for aspiring racing drivers in North America. It enjoyed national television coverage in Canada and drew drivers from all over the world to compete. Atlanic’s list of graduates is impressive, including the legendary Gilles Villeneuve, 1982 F1 World Champion Keke Rosberg, three-time Indycar champ and 1986 Indy 500 winner Bobby Rahal, and 1987 F1 champ Jacques Villeneuve to name but four.
Now those seminal categories will be celebrated with a Reunion Weekend organized by Northern California’s Classic Sports and Racing Group at Thunderhill Park near Willows, California, on the weekend of April 29–May 1. All qualifying cars will be divided into three classes for any Formula B or Atlantic car built through 1986, with all Formula B cars in Class I, all flat-bottom Atlantic cars in Class II and all ground-effect Atlantic cars in Class III.
CSRG Is obviously hoping to attract a huge field of cars, and will add a special Race Group for Reunion cars if the entry list tops 20 cars. For more information please contact the CSRG’s Jon Norman at firstname.lastname@example.org
