Why get a Club Permit? Advantages of the Club Permit Scheme (CPS): The VicRoads fee is made up mostly of the TAC insurance. If extrapolated out over 365 days it can be seen to be fair value for the lesser period of 45 or 90 days. Because it is a permit, probationary drivers can drive […]

You’ve been watching your motor racing heroes like Craig Lowndes, Mark Webber, Peter Brock, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso on TV for as long as you can remember. You’ve been lying in bed and reading about Formula 1, about V8s, and about apexes, understeer, oversteer, brake balance etc. “I can do better than all of […]

There are a few quick ways for the paddock cruiser or spectator to determine if a car is a 1600 or a 1200 Formula Vee at a glance. Most State Championship Regulations specify that 1200 Formula Vees should run a 100mm wide pink band on the front suspension and a 1600 car should run a […]
A Dorian timer is the transponder device required at most circuit races in Australia in order for the race timing system to work. If the car you purchased or leased does not have a dorian timer, you can buy one through Dorian Industries, Factory 1, 29 Graham Court, Hoppers Crossing VIC, 3029. Phone: (03) 9931 […]
Many circuits which run regular “open practice” days do not require the driver to hold any sort of license, however this depends on the track you are practicing at, and you should contact the track for more information.
You do not have to have any experience at all to start racing a Vee. All you need to do is pass your CAMS driver observation test, and obtain a CAMS PCC license.
It depends on the make of car, but drivers as tall as 193cm or 6’4″ have raced Vee’s in recent years. Most new cars made from 2003 onwards also take advantage of an increase wheelbase and car length regulation to make it easier for taller drivers to fit into the cars.
Many weekend racers prefer never to leave Formula Vee once they have started, and there are members that have been racing Vee’s for over 10 years. Some of the younger or more serious racers progress to Formula Ford, or Formula 3, and some end up with a professional V8 drive. Cameron McConville, Larry Perkins, John […]
You need to be 14 years of age (16 in NSW) to hold a CAMS PCC license, which is required to race a Formula Vee in Australia.
Formula Vee is arguably the most competitive open-wheeler category in Australia. It has consistently by far the biggest fields, and there are far more registered Formula Vee’s in Australia than any other open-wheeler category can boast. The low power of Formula Vee’s promotes very close racing with packs forming much like with 125cc motor cycle […]
Some tracks hold weekly or less regular “open practice” days in which any car can compete. Cost for these days is typically $100-$200 depending on the track. Contact your local track for more information. Most race meeting organisers also organise a Friday practice day at the track of the event immediately before the race meeting […]
