Celebrating Formula Vees 60th Birthday and Bill’s 50th year of racing Vees!

Formula Vee

Bigger Hammer Racing is involved in Vintage Racing of Formula Vee race cars in Texas. We have FVs for rent and sale. We maintain customer cars, provide transportation to/from the track as well as crew members for races. Tracks are located in Texas and Oklahoma but trips can be arranged for other locations.

Formula Vees are single seat, mid-engine race cars. They were established as a racing class in 1963. The "formula" calls for the 1200 cc VW Beetle engine, front end and transmission. Modifications have been made over the years and different rules apply to different Clubs. Vintage clubs (CVAR, VMC, etc.) generally allow no improvements beyond 1972 or earlier. Therefore, as an example, while the fan and generator are required in Vintage racing, they have long been removed in SCCA Club racing.
