The winged version of Formula Ford's EcoBoost open-wheel racer will make its circuit debut at Silverstone next month.
British Formula Ford, which is set to become a slicks-and-wings series on the British Touring Car Championship's support bill next season, will hold a sampler day at the Northamptonshire venue on Dec. 15. Two winged versions of the car, which was new for 2012 in non-winged form, will be made available for the test on Silverstone's Stowe circuit.
As well as new front and rear wings, the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engines in the cars have been remapped to produce around 200hp. Championship promoter RacingLine will limit the test to 18 drivers in anticipation of high demand and those wishing to take part are being asked to submit written applications and racing resumes by email.
Series boss Sam Roach said: "We are expecting the first wave of places to be filled quickly by drivers wishing to be the first anywhere in the world to sample the new Formula Ford. Each of them will get a drive slot in order to sample the new car and they will also have the opportunity to meet representatives of the teams planning to contest the series, meet the Formula Ford championship organization, and take part in technical and sporting presentations."
