Formula Ford emerged as a racing class in New Zealand in 1972. The open wheel category rapidly developed into the series for emerging young New Zealand race drivers. Previous winners include Craig Baird, Scott Dixon, Fabian Coulthard, Jonny Reid, Shane van Gisbergen and Richie Stanaway. From the 2016-17 season it has been re-named the NZ Formula 1600 Championship.
