Default F1 class

I know that there is some really good racing going on in F2 but what about F1? Is it mainly new racers or is it a really active class? Which hull seems to dominate in your opinion? Is a Vortec HP3 still legal in this class as an alternative to the HP500?

You must be looking to race... WAY COOL!

Personally, I love the F-1 class, probably because in a few years I can probably afford to race that class - F-2 sounds great, But I'm a simple man, on a budget.

To my knowledge the HP500 is the only engine for F-1 these days, but I could be wrong.

I'll be counting my pennies, maybe in the next few years I'll have enough to race.

Kinda a dead class right now. Most of the F1 guys went up in class. The other ones went P class racing. Same for the F2 also. Seems most everyone stepped up to a canopy class. APBA LLC was the end of factory racing as we know it. But they were trying to change to the 525 because the 500 was being discontinued.

There was a moment in recent F1 history where 4 engines were allowed.
HP500 Carb, HP500 EFI, HP525 EFI, and the GM Vortec 525.
That is what killed the class.
Had the leadership kept the same concept (one engine) as was established at the onset of F1, It would still be a strong class today.

Yet another testament to the quandry left behind, whats it gonna take to put the FUN back in the sport which is what it will take to help it gain popularity?

If they used the HP525 and the HP3 that would be 2 engines to choose from and not be forced to use Merc. That would be a good thing for me. I would rather run the Vortec personally.
