After a long break, the last event was back in March, the Investchem Formula Ford Kent competitors return to the track at Red Star Raceway, outside Delmas, for the second round of the 2017 championship on Saturday, 3 June.

Dean Venter (Desco SA / Manitou Swift) had an almost perfect start to the season at the opening round of the championship, with a second place followed by a win. This sees him leading the title race from defending champion Andrew Horne (Xena Chemicals / Budd Power Van Diemen). David Jermy (Jacquet Racing Van Diemen) is next up with Jeff Gable in another Jacquet Racing Van Diemen in fourth place.

The battle for the lead at Red Star will almost certainly feature these four drivers but they should be joined by the likes of Jonathan Nash (Matt Nash Motorsport Swift), Allen Meyer (Van Diemen), and former champion Graham Hepburn.

Things get underway at 08h10 on Saturday when the 15-minute qualifying session starts, with the opening 8-lap race following at 12h00. Race 2 is scheduled to get underway at 15h45.
