Juno Formula Ford & Juno F4
Following on from the success and growth of Juno's Sports Prototype programme in 2008 the decision was made to broaden our range, and apply our knowledge and skills in to the ultra competitive, multi chassis Formula Ford championship.
Built to the stillborn 2010 Formula Ford regulations change, the Juno Formula Ford immediately raised eyebrows with our innovative engineering approach. Quick from the outset, the Juno Formula Ford is a different breed.
In the tricky financial climate, development was stunted and held back, but on occasion the package showed flashes of promise throughout the 2009 and 2010 season and in the 2011 Festival.
For 2011 the car has been heavily revised to incorporate a new Roll Over Structure, New optimised Engine cover, Front Bodywork and Nose cone. Through limited testing we have only scratched the surface of the potential of the car, but recent devlopments have bought the car on tremendously to be on the pace of the leading cars moving towards a more driveable set up.
The Juno chassis is TIG welded Steel Tubular Spaceframe. Mated to the Ford 1600cc Engine and Hewland 4 speed LD Gearbox with a bespoke Cast Aluminium Bell Housing. The chassis also features a Front Crash structure to meet stringent saftey requirments. The cockpit is the largest in the class, making it very comfortable allowing the driver full concentration.
The AIM data logger and steering wheel gives the driver all the information at his fingertips, and allows for thorough data analysis in the pit garage.
The suspension is made up of TIG welded Aero section Wishbones and Pushrods with Anti Roll Bars, Billet Aluminium Universal uprights and Juno OZ Racing wheels.
The Juno chassis is designed to take the Duratec Ford engine, but can also be adapted to accept the Kent Ford engine as well. Eligible to race throughout the world, The Juno Formula Ford is the perfect car to begin taking the steps to become a race driver at the front of the grid.
We now use this chassis as the basis for our latest creation the Juno F4. With the inclusion of aerodynamic devices including Undertray, Diffuser and fully adjustable Front and Rear Wings along with revised Hub design to allow the fitment of centre lock F3 Wheels. This combination allows for an ultra competitive package, which in just its first few races has reaped podium finishes.
