TOPEKA, Kan. — Honda Performance Development has been named presenting sponsor of the Formula F 45th Anniversary, part of the SCCA Summer SpeedFest, Aug. 9-10 at Barber Motorsports Park.

As a presenting sponsor of the event, HPD will have a large presence on site, including displays and giveaways, and will provide the weekend’s pace car – a race-prepared Honda CRZ.

HPD will also post contingency payouts at the same level as the U.S. Majors Tour, offering $500 for a win, $300 for second-place, and $150 for a third-place finish in Formula F while running a Honda motor.

“We’re thrilled to announce HPD’s involvement with this Formula F birthday celebration, and especially for the true support that they’re throwing behind the competitors for this milestone weekend,” Lisa Noble, SCCA President/CEO, said. “In addition to the support as presenting sponsor, HPD is helping us put the finishing touches on a celebrity appearance that we should be able to announce in the coming days. This event is shaping up as a ‘can’t miss’ for those in the small formula car community.”

The Formula F 45th anniversary event is the focal point of the SCCA Summer SpeedFest at Barber Motorsports Park. Highlighting the weekend is the Saturday night Formula F birthday celebration open to drivers, participants, workers and crew members of each class participating in the weekend, including dinner, at the track. The celebration will feature industry celebrities and legendary racers.

On the track, run groups will feature cars from each era of the Formula F timeline, ranging from vintage racers to what are now known as “Club Ford” through the current National Championship-eligible specs. Each class will race both on Saturday and Sunday, with a 45th celebration planned at the track for Saturday night featuring industry celebrities and legendary racers.
