The calendar for this years series has been released:

2010 Genuine Ford Part Australian Formula Ford Championship

1. Mar 25-28, Australian Grand Prix, VIC
2. Apr 30-May2, Queensland Raceway, QLD
3. May 14-16, Winton, VIC
4. Jun 18-20, Hidden Valley, NT
5. Jul 9-11, Townsville, QLD
6. Oct 22-24, Gold Coast, QLD
7. Nov 12-14, Symmons Plains, TAS
8. Nov 19-21, Sandown, VIC


So that's 3 races in Qld, 3 races in Vic and 1 each in NT and Tas.

My question is: if you have no races in WA, SA and NSW can you actually call yourself a national championship?

Most sports in the USA are called the World Series of something and they never leave North America so why not.

Thats like saying you can't have an "American Champion" without visiting all 50 states, a complete non argument.

I have no idea what the USA has to do with the Australian Formula Ford championship.

3 races in Qld, 3 races in Vic and no races in NSW seems strange to me.

Saying that a national title doesnt need to be competed for in all regions, sometimes it's just not feasable, what do they call it, the North Eastern & Southern Australian Formula Ford Championship?

How is it not feasible to travel to NSW but it is feasible to travel to Qld and Vic?

Formula Ford won't go to NSW for two reasons.

1 - Where do they run? Bathurst and Homebush are not allowed due to restrictions thanks to their respective track licences that do not allow Open Wheelers on the track.
2 - A lot of it is also down to the NSW government not allowing drivers under 16 to race (unlike the remainder of the civilised world).. therefore any of the youngsters in the category would have to sit out any NSW event. Mitch Evans had to get a waiver from the Sports Minister and CAMS to be allowed to run at Wakefield at the recent f3 round, at age 15.
