Formula IFS
2022 Formula IFS
The goal of Formula IFS is to build a class in the spirit of the Formula 56 class popular the 80s. It will allow sleds that had been performance rated by ISR to compete in the same class. This class will allow certain Fan / Free Air and Liquid cooled sleds to compete together while also allowing certain leaf and IFS sleds to compete together. Only listed sleds may compete. Additions to the qualified sled list can be made at the discretion of the Race Director. Below is the list of qualified sleds by manufacturer.
