2017 Bertil Roos F-2000 Series
January 20, 2017
The Bertil Roos F-2000 Race Series will open its 2017 season on March 26, at Palm Beach International Raceway in Florida.
Now in its 35th consecutive season, the formula car series remains the least expensive arrive and drive series in the country. The eight event, 16 race series will also make stops at Dominion Raceway in Virginia, as well as multiple stops at New Jersey Motorsports Park and Pocono Raceway. The end of the year non-points Fewkes Enduro will be held at Roebling Road Raceway near Savannah, GA.
“We take pride in promoting inexpensive ‘arrive and drive’ racing for our participants,” noted Roos CEO Dennis Macchio. “The emphasis is on safe, low cost, ‘even playing field’ competition, where driving skill is the determining variable.”
The series has been the starting point for many past and present pro drivers, while remaining a long-term alternative for many experienced racers.
“We have the perfect mix of older, seasoned racers, and young guns looking to climb the career ladder” explains Macchio. “Emphasis is on maintaining a low cost, etiquette oriented environment that satisfies the appetite of a wide variety of racers and experience levels. It is a series that sharply raises the learning curve, due to both talent and experience levels of our various drivers.”
Both the number, and cost of crashes are the lowest in the industry, a tradition that the promoters intend to continue.
“We embrace hard, clean driving. We have a very low tolerance for clowns. And there is zero opportunity for a driver to ‘buy a championship,’” Macchio explains. “It is why we have, and will continue to be a special place to race.”
