August 1st and 2nd was the Formula & Automobile Racing Association (FARA) race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. As part of Shoot Miami I was awarded an all-access press pass, allowing me full admission to pit row and past most of the safety fences.
FARAUSA was established in Florida to allow amateur and beginning drivers to compete with more experienced drivers. August 2nd included not only racing for MP1 – MP4 and F01 & F02 class cars, but also a demonstration by a top-fuel dragster, racing bike, drifting competition, and even the Tour de FARA – their charity bicycle race.
After 6 hours in the sun and taking over 750 pictures I was ready to head home. The event was fun. The event was fun! FARAUSA’s next event is September 26th and 27th, and their endurance race, 24 HRS OF MIAMI, is scheduled for November 6th through 8th. If you enjoy racing, you’ll enjoy this event…just bring sunscreen and ear protection.
