Racing Budget 2021 (Indicative) – rookie car

The Concept

The Locost Formula (officially northern regions class L – since 2013) is specifically designed to offer both an entry point into motor sport, and to provide a class where a competitor with a limited budget can still be competitive. Motor Sport has become an expensive sport, even with the traditional entry level classes it has become prohibitively expensive to be competitive. The Locost Formula is based around the popular Locost racing series in the UK, this series organised by the 750MC continues to show significant growth in popularity since it’s inception in 2000.

Leet Racing aims to grow this class by providing as many people as possible with the opportunity to participate, where you become part of the “Locost team”.

More information on the Lotus Register.

The Car

The Locost Formula Racer is based on the design as documented in the book “How to build your own sports car, and race it”, but has seen many improvements and alterations since the book, and while the basics has been kept in place, a strict set of rules has been crafted for the class L racers, loosely as follows:

• Locost sized frame, Locost look bodywork
• Ford Rocam engine, no mods apart from a controlled camshaft
• Ford Sierra / Escort Gearbox, standard
• Ford or VW based brake systems
• Dunlop specific semi slick tyres
