Named after its use of Volkswagen components, Formula Vee is recognised by the Australian motor sport governing body, CAMS, as the entry-level open-wheeler circuit competition. Strictly controlled car specifications place greater emphasis on driver skill rather than budget and mechanical aptitude. As a result, it is a learning class and a stepping-stone into higher levels of motor sport. Larry Perkins, John Bowe, Colin Bond, Cameron McConville, Jason Bargwanna and Paul Stokell all began their careers in Formula Vee.
With in excess of 300 cars nationally, grids are filled with drivers of different backgrounds and aspirations. From 14 to 65, male or female, professional or enthusiast, young karting graduates to office workers. Driver skill, not budget is what drives a Formula Vee. An ideal place to start, and a great place to stay, people new to the sport (and often those in other categories) are frequently surprised by the humanity and mate-ship throughout the Vee paddock.
Along with nurturing up-and-coming stars of tomorrow, it captivates seasoned competitors who enjoy the social and family friendly environment. Despite the on-track intensity and competitiveness, Vee members rally together to assist each-other, in a way few categories match.
