About Formula 5000…  “Formula 5000 was introduced in 1968 as a class within SCCA Formula A races. The engines used were generally 5 litre, fuel injected Chevrolet engines that produced about 500 horsepower at 8000 rpm. The concept was inspired by the success of the Can-Am Series, which featured unlimited formula sports cars fitted with very powerful engines derived from American V8s; the idea was to replicate the concept using open wheel racing cars. F5000 enjoyed popularity in the early 1970s in the U.S. and abroad. ”

    NOW this is epic! I always wanted Classic Carlectables’ F5000 but shipping from AU costed almost the same as the model.
    Now I can consider getting it. Thanks ACME!

    It should not be thought that F5000 was an America only series. Europe also had a series at the same time. However, the difference was that Europe had a more open minded approach to what a ‘stock block’ was. As such, the Ford Capri GAA engine was allowed into the series, driven by (among others) none other than future F1 champion Alan Jones. The standard Ford Capri engine block was used for the GAA, although the rest of the engine was more sophisticated. By the time this engine arrived, F5000 was already in serious decline.

    Awesome looking things, I love that era of racing. Great to see them being replicated with such detail.

  5. Will you be producing the 74-75 Lola driven by Mario Andretti?
