Salem, NH - Formula Race Promotions (FRP) announced today that the United States Auto Club (USAC) will sanction the Atlantic, F2000 and F1600 Championship Series for 2017 and beyond. The new sanctioning agreement will provide a seamless transition of licensing and credentialing for FRP competitors.
"We're excited to be aligning with USAC for our future," said Bob Wright and Al Guibord, co-owners of Formula Race Promotions. "After months of talks with USAC, we felt they were the best choice for our current competitors and future drivers and teams. They are an organization with a long and proud history, and we're honored to be among their road racing Championships. On another note, we'd like to thank SCCA Pro Racing for their 11 year partnership and wish them the best in their own endeavors in junior open-wheel racing."
“USAC is returning to our roots with the addition of road course racing in 2017. I am excited with our new FRP partnership and look forward to growing the sport together,” added Kevin Miller, president and CEO, USAC.
The 2017 Atlantic, F2000 and F1600 Championships will open at VIRginia International Raceway, joining an action-packed road racing weekend with the Pirelli World Challenge, also now aligned with USAC, April 28-30.
