Series 1: Thank you Josef Hopen (1968 - 1974) - 1600 cc's, slicks, but no wings yet!
Series 2: Wings & Slicks - Oh my! (1974 - 1977) - still air-cooled, but now running wings, slicks, a HEWLAND and there's now
a GOLD CUP!
Series 3: Water Cooled & WAY Faster (1978 -late 80's) - Water cooled, way faster, and notable names developing in the much
quicker cars. Heck, the class had achieved the name "Mini-Indy"!

UPDATES for those that follow & have been patient!
1 - Apologies to all that have sent updates for which I am delinquent in recording/updating. The registry form is FAR from efficient and I am looking for a better model. In the meantime, please be patient as I find an better solution.
2 - I receive a fair amount of inquiry specific to starting a classifieds/for sale section, please take a moment and provide me your interest in using this as a forum to post these fantastic race cars for sale and if you would be willing to pay a fee to post (please bear in mind that I host this site at my expense).
3 - It has been brought to my attention that the Series 3 cars should be split into the pre-ground effects cars and the ground effects cars. If indeed this is to occur, I would merely append the Series 3 group into Series 3a and Series 3b (pre-ground effects and ground effects respectively). Please provide input.
4 - FINALLY - It is my understanding that the SVRA is contemplating a Formula Car ONLY weekend in 2017 prior to their normal Historics. If so, can we cobble together enough FSV that commit to racing there I will approach the SVRA requesting a class. PLEASE PROVIDE FEEDBACK ASAP.
