Following a successful shake-down test with Joey Foster at Donington Park (UK) in mid-September, the new 2015 model RFR Formula 1000 (FB) car was quickly air-freighted to the USA to compete in last weekend’s prestigious SCCA Run Offs held at Laguna Seca in California, where all the regional champions came together to race for the National Championship.

Overseen by Ralph Firman himself, the new car was raced by JR Osborne who proceeded to secure pole position by 7/10ths, lead the race from start to finish and win by over 5 seconds, setting fastest lap along the way.

Orders are already in place for the new car, not only from North America, but also from Australia where West Race Cars, the new Firman Cars agents, have taken a further two deposits.
