The SRF is an enclosed wheel, open cockpit, purpose built race car. Power is by a Ford 1.9 liter, hemispherical head, 4 cylinder engine. With over 800 cars delivered, the SRF enjoys being the largest class of road racing cars within the SCCA and the country. The car is raced by amateurs and pros alike at such venues as Laguna Seca, Sears Point, Road America, Watkins Glen, Road Atlanta, and many other tracks around the country.
Every Spec Racer Ford is a one design, fixed specification car. The very first cars are the same as the last car delivered. Engines and transmissions are sealed to prevent enhancements. With all cars the same, a premium is put on driver ability and competition, not who spends the most money. The Spec Racer Ford has put an end to the constant search for the next costly improvement.
