2017 Championship Winning Formula Vee for sale.
This is the ex Jake Oliveira Storm. Championship winner in 2017, numerous pole positions, wins and fastest laps.
Only 2 outings in 2018 which yielded 3 pole positions, win and 3rd place all using year old tyres – still the car to beat.
A lot of research and attention to detail has gone into developing this car:
For the 2016 season I completely stripped and rebuilt the car around a new chassis. Numerous developments including FF1600 roll bar, improved cooling and lightened components. Distributor, switches, ignitions leads all replaced.
For 2017 the engine was upgraded by GAC to their latest works spec, undoubtedly one of the best engines on the grid. Dyno sheets are available.
For 2018 I replaced all bodywork and stripped/ rebuilt the front beam, replaced brake shoes and replaced the lightweight lithium battery.
This car is ready to win the 2019 championship in the right hands.
Price includes some spare bodywork and suspension components.
Happy to help the buyer get started with running the car or develop it further – there is still untapped potential.
Price is £10k for the car, spare bodywork, suspension arms etc an additional £500.
A covered trailer also available for £1950
