Ford Doubles Up in Formula F at Miller Motorsports Park

Conner Ford took over the 2012 Corsa Car Care presents Pacific Formula F Super Series championship points lead with a pair of victories April 28-29 at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah.

Ford and his PR1 Honda Mygale were untouchable at Miller, qualifying on the pole for both races, leading series rookie Tommy Boileau home on Saturday; and heading Sage Marie, another first-time Formula F competitor, to the checkers in Sunday’s race.

Ford’s pair of wins at Miller, combined with a win at the Willow Springs season opener, have vaulted him to an early-season lead in the Pacific Formula F Super Series standings, with 129 points to 57 for Ed Erlandson, who won the second of the two Willow rounds last month, but did not make the trip to Miller for Rounds 3-4.

On Saturday, Ford went flag-to-flag for the victory over Boileau, a second-generation Honda racer and SCCA Showroom and Touring car veteran, who was making his open-wheel racing debut in a Honda-powered Piper Formula F.

In Sunday’s second round, Ford again dominated, recording his third victory in four starts this year and turning the tables on Marie, who earlier in the day had led Ford to a 1-2 finish for their Honda Fits in the new B-Spec race series at Miller.

Next up for the Corsa Car Care presents Pacific Formula F Super Series is the May 19-20 doubleheader weekend at California’s Buttonwillow Raceway.

Meanwhile, the eastern U.S.-based F1600 Formula F Championship Series resumes its own 10-race season May 25-26 at Lime Rock Park.
