Formula Ford Festival

The Formula Ford Festival is a prestigious “World Cup” event for Formula Ford single seater racing cars, organised by the British Racing and Sports Car Club (BRSCC). Originally the event was held at the Snetterton circuit in Norfolk, UK before it moved to its permanent home Brands Hatch in Kent, UK in 1976. It has been won by numerous Formula 1 drivers over the years, including 2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button in 1998 and multiple-Grand Prix winners Mark Webber (1996), Eddie Irvine (1987) and Johnny Herbert (1985).
