Formula Junior Racing

Formula Junior was introduced in 1959 as a class of racing where younger drivers could be introduced to single-seater racing. It ended when Formula 2 and Formula 3 were re-introduced to the racing scene for the 1964 season. Formula Junior has continued to be featured at historic racing events and here are some of the cars which contested the Lenham Storage Formula Junior Championship race at the Historic Sports Car Club's Spring Historic Race Meeting at Oulton Park in May 1986.
