Welcome to the new Atlantic Formula Racing Association Website!

Who are we?


The Atlantic Formula Racing Association (AFRA) was formed in 1992 by a group of Formula 1600 racers and others dedicated to the advancement of Formula Car racing in the Atlantic region.


In 1992, AFRA organized a racing series for Formula 1600 race cars, known as the Atlantic Formula 1600 Championship Series or Atlantic F1600 Championship Series.


Since that time, AFRA has organized an annual racing series for Formula race cars, with races being held at the 2.575 km, 11-turn road circuit at Atlantic Motorsport Park near Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia.
