The 2011 Australian Formula Ford Championship was a CAMS sanctioned national motor racing title for drivers of Formula Ford racing cars.[1] It was the 42nd national series for Formula Fords to be held in Australia and the 19th to carry the Australian Formula Ford Championship name. The championship was contested over an eight round series which began on 17 March 2011 at the Adelaide Parklands Circuit and ended on 13 November at Symmons Plains Raceway.[1] Australian Formula Ford Management Pty. Ltd. was appointed by CAMS as the Category Manager for the series, which was officially known as the “2011 Australian Formula Ford Championship for the Ford Fiesta Cup".[1]

Waters recorded seven race wins to Le Brocq's four, whilst third placed Nick Foster won six races. Other race winners were Matthew Brabham, who only contested a partial season in 2011, Daniel Erickson, Tom Williamson in the factory-supported Spectrum, Trent Harrison and Liam Sager.
