A thirteen car entry has been lodged for the opening round of the 2013 Australian Formula Ford Championship, set to take place at Symmons Plains in a little over a week’s time.

With the top four in last year’s championship, Jack Le Brocq, Matthew Hart, Garry Jacobson and Shae Davies, all having moved on, a new wave of young talent will be vying for the title this season.

The Symmons field will be made up of nine Mygales and four of the Australian-built Spectrums.

Minda Motorsport’s four-car CAMS Rising Stars squad of Macauley Jones, Liam Sager, Jayden Wallis and Sam Breen will lead the Mygale charge alongside the three-man Sonic Motor Racing Services line-up of Anton De Pasquale, Simon Hodge and Luke Marquis.

Sam Power will likely be the pick of the Spectrums having placed sixth in points last year, where he split Rookie of the Year Jones and late-season sensation De Pasquale.

The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport, CAMS, has moved the management of the Australian Formula Ford Championship in-house ahead of the new season.

CAMS’ Jody Zylstra has taken over the position of category manager from Margaret Hardy, who continues in the role of category administrator.

The 13 car Symmons entry is three greater than that received for the corresponding event in Tasmania last season.
