The Stohr F1000

Origins[edit]

After driving an Elden FF for several years in the early 1980s, Lee Stohr designed and built several of his own Formula Fords, Formula Continentals and a Formula 3 type car. In 2001 Stohr moved into the D Sports Racing class. Their first National Championship came just one year later at the SCCA Runoffs in Mid-Ohio.[2] In 2005 Lee Stohr and Wayne Felch expanded the business with the introduction of a newer, faster WF1. The company was one of the first to join the new Formula 1000 class in early 2007. In 2014, Stohr Cars was sold to Dauntless Racing.
