The UK Formula Vee Championship will kick back into action on the 17th April 2021. With a reduced 2020 calendar, we now have a full calendar for the 2021 season.
Formula Vee is as popular as ever, the formula has seen fantastic growth over the years and this year is no exception with full grids expected at all events.
Formula Vee last visited the iconic Cadwell Park circuit (dubbed as the “mini Nordschleife”) back in 2017 for the 50th anniversary. James Harridge was crowned the winner of the spectacular three heat event.
Following on from James Harridge’s 2020 championship win, can he start off his title defence with a victory?

The 2017 Formula Vee festival is at Brands Hatch on 28/29th October. Again earlier this year so let’s make sure we fill the place with Vees and finish off the 50th Anniversary in style and with a lot of fun. More details will follow soon on the exact format but be assured this will be the usual excellent value with practice and up to 3 races: it is only £260! We’ve had some superb racing this year with smiles a plenty at the last meeting so here’s one last chance for track action, and with our luck this season it will be scorchio!
*Cars must conform fully with their current national regs including tyres! The usual prizes will be up for grabs. Get your entries in early as places are limited and you don’t want to miss this last fun and great value outing before the winter. Entry form below (click on it).

As many of you know, sadly we lost Derek Willetts last year after his short battle with cancer. Derek had been in Vee seemingly for ever. He was a part of the Vee community as a driver, a mechanic and a team owner for decades. A fantastic trophy has been purchased by Mike Oldknow, Paul Taylor and the Vee Centre in commemoration of Derek. It was presented for the first time to the winner of the Vee Festival at the end of last season. The plan is to present it for different things each year. Derek won’t mind us saying that he wasn’t always at the front himself but a happy and dedicated participant in the thick of things. Therefore the award will not always be given for outright performance or race wins. Cadwell Park was Derek’s favourite circuit. Therefore this season the Willetts Trophy will be awarded this weekend in Class B to the driver (not currently in the championship top 6) with the best combined Class B race results over the 2 races of the weekend. It will be simple scoring of first in class B eligible drivers is 1 , 2nd 2, 3rd 3 etc. Clearly lowest score wins. In the event of a tie, the trophy goes to the winner with the best place finish (ie 1&3 beats 2&2). If things are still tied it will be decided on fastest race lap! Simple! We look forward to a great weekend and to remembering our mate Derek.Read more →

Apex Festival 10 – 11 May 2014
We Vees are again invited to the Apex Festival at Lydden Hill this year. For those who haven’t been this is a great weekend. There is a massive amount of track time on offer on this challenging track. The circuit and grounds will also be full of air-cooled kit of every shape and form. There is lots going on with 1000’s of people in attendance. We have always been made very welcome and it’s a fun family weekend.
Exact details are still to be finalised but the basic outline looks like free practice sessions on the Saturday and you can enter the sprint competition. On the Sunday there will be at least a qualifying session and two races. The price is circa £200. Last year we had well over two hours of track time for that and this year should be similar.
For an overview of the whole festival check out http://www.apexfestival.co.uk/save-the-date/index.html
As soon as more details and entry forms are available we’ll let you know, but get the date in your diary!Read more →
