About the Series

The West Coast FCC series and FS2.0 are two great solutions for drivers looking to move up into The Mazda Road to Indy.

 

Since 2005 The Formula Car Challenge presented by Goodyear has been graduating racers up into the pro ranks. FCC graduates have won the 12 Hours of Sebring, multiple races in Indy Lights, Porsche Cup and Prototype Championships and more. Starting in 2012 the series has been using a new class of car (the FS2.0) to provide racers with a cost effective way to gain the optimum amount of track time and experience.

 

Michael Whelden won the National FormulaSPEED2.0 Championship in 2012, and went on to secure the FCC Pro Formula Mazda Championship the following year. His successes lead to him making the final five selected by Mazda Motorsport to compete in the Mazda Club Racer Shootout. Whelden also parlayed his successes into a seat with the Lexus factory team at this year's 25 Hours of Thunderhill.


Here is what Michael Whelden said about his time racing the FS2.0, "Racing the FormulaSPEED2.0 with World Speed Motorsports was a fantastic learning platform for open-wheel racing. Driving the FormulaSPEED2.0 was great for learning excellent car control and helped me progress as a driver. World Speed Motorsports was exceptional at teaching me how to communicate with engineers to get the best setup for the race weekend. Together, they prepared me for a successful 2013 Formula Car Challenge season in the Pro Formula Mazda. I am very excited to have progressed forward in the series and continue to improve my driving and find success at the top."

 

Parker Nickin won the 2013 FCC Regional FS2.0 Championship, and moved up into Pro Formula Mazda for the last race weekend of the 2013 season. Nicklin qualified on pole, and took the class win in only his second Pro FM race. "We designed the FormulaSPEED2.0 to be a great learning tool for drivers interested in eventually moving into Pro FM," noted World Speed President Telo Stewart. "These results, and easy transitions have proven that this goal was met."

This is what is adjustable on the FS2.0:

  • Front dampers - rebound & compression
  • Rear dampers - rebound & compression
  • Adjustable front anti roll bar
  • Adjustable rear anti roll bar
