Formula Vee (US) or Formula 1200 (Canada), is a racing class based on the pre-1963 Volkswagen Beetle. The engine, transmission, suspension and brakes are stock or modified parts; the chassis is a tube frame design with a fiberglass body. It has changed little from the start, yet has seen some of the world’s finest racers in its ranks.
Our Canadian/American based series is passionate about providing a competitive and low cost venue for hardworking, up-and-coming drivers. The ten race season features Formula Vee and Formula 1200 open-wheeled race cars competing at premier road courses within the United States and Canada.
With the increased exposure and interest in both Canada and the U.S., this series can only get bigger, making this the perfect time for a passionate brand to partner with the Challenge Cup.
The 2020 Championship
Sam Ryan drove great all season and secured his second Overall Championship, followed by Ray Carmody finishing second in the Championship, and Trevor Carmody finishing third. In the Masters Division the Championship three were Sam Ryan, Tim Sager, and Mark Farnham. The Young Guns Division Championship three were Ray Carmody, Trevor Carmody, and Ray Qualls.
Next, Ryan Donaghy was awarded the Challenge Cup Series 2020 Most Improved Driver award. Ryan did a fantastic job since his rookie season in 2019, making huge improvements in his driving and race craft. For example, Ryan improved his lap time at Summit Point Motorsports Park by over nine seconds from his rookie season to the 2020 season! He also had many on track battles with the series’ best drivers all season long, gaining the approval of many. We expect to see continued improvement from Ryan in 2021! Great job this year, Ryan!
Lastly was the Challenge Cup Series 2020 Rookie of the Year award, who was presented to Emily Ryan. Emily has proved to everyone that she is going to be highly successful in her racing career. In her first season alone she took on all comers, and never backed down from any competition. Her skill behind the wheel is evident, and we expect to see her continue her upward trend in 2021! Great job, Emily!
Congratulations to all the drivers on another great season of racing! We hope to see everyone back again in 2021!
