Third Formula B 55th Anniversary Feature Nov 4-6, Thunderhill with CSRG

The FB anniversary celebration began at Indianapolis in June, continued in September at Road America and will have the third 2022 celebration at Thunderhill Raceway Park with CSRG's final 2022 vintage race.

The 1967 Continental Grand Prix Series was SCCA's first professional formula series.  The fast, quick, nimble Formula B cars with some 180 horsepower, 1600 cc twin cam engines, in a 900 pound car dominated the series for Formula A (3 liter F1) B, C (Formula Junior) cars.  Gus Hutchinson in a Lotus 41b sealed the 1967 five race Drivers Championship with a win over 35 cars at the Lake Tahoe Grand Prix in California.  The cars were combined with F5000 cars in the 1968 series and then had their own series.  They continue to be very popular in vintage racing.
