Formula Vee racing began in 1959 when Hubert L. Brundage commissioned Italian race car designer Enrico Nardi to create the Brundage Formula Junior from Volkswagen components. The concept was to provide an inexpensive, reliable, and competitive racecar for the masses. In 1963, SCCA officially recognized Formula Vee as a racing class. True to its core mission, Formula Vee has continued to be one of the world’s most popular and affordable racecars, even graduating Formula One and Indy 500 winners.
The 100-mph cornering speeds, high G-loads, and neck-and-neck drafting make for interesting and exciting racing. The car’s simple construction – aerodynamic fiberglass or carbon fiber body, Volkswagen beetle engine, transaxle and suspension – level the playing field for drivers. And off the track, Formula Vee requires limited mechanical skills, tools, space, and transportation costs.
Formula Vees race on the world’s great road racing tracks – Watkins Glen, Mid Ohio, VIR, and Road America.
