Pacific F2000 Series

The Pacific Formula F2000 Series gives you wings...and more horsepower.

The Pacific Formula F2000 Championship Series offers 15 racing opportunities over six weekends at leading West Coast venues such as California Speedway, Buttonwillow Raceway and Las Vegas Speedway. The Pacific Formula F2000 series is designed to be the next step up for F1600 drivers with the introduction of wings, increased power and larger racing tires. The suspension geometry of a modern F2000 is as sophisticated as anything out there, and offers great training for drivers, engineers and mechanics. It is a formula, not a spec car, so there are numerous chassis designs, multiple motors allowed, and room to make a better mouse trap. At the same time, there are enough restrictions to keep costs in check.

F2000 originated in England in 1974 and has helped spawn the careers of many of the sport's top names. In North America, its alumni include Sam Hornish Jr., Buddy Rice, Paul Tracy, Jimmy Vasser and Dan Wheldon. Graduates of Pacific F2000 since its inception in 2004 include J.R. Hildebrand, who won the 2009 Firestone Indy Lights Championship and drives the No. 4 National Guard car in the IZOD IndyCar Series; rising Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series star Dane Cameron; and Jason Bowles, who won the 2011 NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale Speedway.  F2000 Series FAQs >

PF2000 FAQ's

Q: How old do I have to be to race Pacific F2000?
A: 13 in the minimum age, but this requires approval on an individual basis. Each drivers experience and qualifications will be reviewed by the series management. If you already have an SCCA, NASA, FIA or equivalent license then you can race in the series.
Q: Do I need to own my own car?
A: You can own your own car or rent a car from teams that participate in the series.
Q: What does it cost to race in the Pacific F20000 series?
A: season of all the race weekends and some testing with everything in a package deal can probably be negotiated for under $100,000. We are aware of packages by championship winning prep shops for less than that. On the other end, we are aware that some privateer teams spend considerably less that $50,000 and consistently run in the top 10, often top 5. The one big unknown in these numbers is crash damage. You have to be prepared for it because these racecars are driven at the limit of their performance capabilities and there will be incidents.
Q: Which engines are eligible for the Pacific F2000 series?
A: The Pacific F2000 car uses a 2L Ford Zetec engine.
Q: How much does a car cost?
A: A used car cost $30,000 to $40,000; this cost really depends on the age of the car, the condition and spares package. A new car will cost a $60,000 to $70,000; this price really depends on specifications of the car on such things as Data systems and shocks.
Q: How do I get more information?
A: You can contact the series management through our Contact Form or contact the teams that are listed on the web-site.
Q: Can I race in the series if I live in another country?
A: Yes, but your age and experience would have to be verified. If you are a minor your parents would need to sign the required consent forms.
