Florida Amateur Driving Club to host 2020 Amateur World Cup

Pompano Beach, FL — The Florida Amateur Driving Club will host the 2020 Amateur World Cup Championship at Pompano Park on Feb. 23 and 24.

Twelve countries will be represented at this event, with the United States representative determined by a driving series to be held at Pompano from Dec. 8 to Feb. 9.

The criteria for participation in the series are as follows:

• All contestants must be a member in good standing with the Florida Amateur Driving Club.
• The qualifying series will run from Dec. 8, 2019, through Feb. 9, 2020, using FADC races. A three-race final series for the top nine drivers in points will take place on or about Feb. 16. The point winner of that three-race series will represent the United States in the 2020 Amateur World Cup.
• Each contestant will pay $1,000 for the qualifying series to be eligible. If there are fewer than nine eligible drivers as of Feb. 8, 2020, FADC members or membership eligible drivers may ‘supplement’ into the three-race final for $3,000. If there are more supplementing drivers than spots available, the available spots will be drawn randomly by the Pompano Park race secretary.
• Contestants may race in any or all of the FADC races during that time period.
• Contestants will score only their top 10 races using the European scoring system.
• Contestants will secure their own horses for the series races. Horses may be provided for the three-race final.
• Contestants agree to be available at Pompano Park for the World Cup series on Feb. 23 and 24. The World Cup will be a six-race series.
• Horses will be provided for the World Cup races in February.
• Drivers will not be permitted to drive their own horses in the World Cup competition.
