Fórmula Ford

Created by the nice Gaspar family in 2011, Formula Ford Portugal, old "Single Seater Series", had as a primary motivation the existence of a competition where this amazing formulas could race, instead being inside of a garage, and that could only race at track days.

Overtime, Formula Ford have been receiving an increasing number of participants, and in 2016 Single Seater Series started being organized by Race Ready.

In 2017 the competition changed name to Formula Ford Portugal, with the institutional partnership of Ford Lusitana, with an increasing protagonism in Portugal.


Portugal always had the great tradition of the little formulas without wings, specially Formula Ford. A championship that existed between 1970 e 2002, known for the big competitivity, show on track and low costs. It was the "school" of big champions like Ernesto Neves, Pedro Lamy, Pedro Matos Chaves, Manuel Gião, Gonçalo Gomes, João Barbosa, José Pedro Fontes, Pedro Salvador, and many more. Sometimes, the previous year champions stayed for the next year, because they couldn't find any championship so good to progress on their career.

The regulation was created in a way to join a group of cars with the same rate on track and with the best price/performance/pleasure relation of driving in any motors sport. It was an instantly success, with several "Gentlemen Drivers" having fun on their beautiful and vintage formulas.

Since 2014, young wolfs arrived from the Karting rediscovered Formula Ford as a perfect way to start the circuits, always improving their driving skills.

In our race series, we had several teams with shortage of ECU for their Zetecs. Of course 15 year old ECU at some point start failing as any other part. 

As Cosworth is not interested in making more Pectel, we developed a new ECU replica of the old map. Our focus was the new ECU had the same level of performance and more reliable, as the old ECU in HOT environment 
were several teams that from our Portuguese championship, we developed Pectel T2 replicas just with the same power (more 0.5HP) as the old ones and also improving the reliability, as the old T2 were too much lean with high speed lambda at 0.92.
The new ECU are also very easy to fit in old looms with easy and cheap adaptors, just plug and play.
The ECU were already tested in Dyno, in testing conditions and in race conditions and 100% reliability so far.
Any other question, please let us know.
