My Formula 5000
Thomas Jones is expected to return to the Formula 5000 series in
1976 driving a new Lola.. Not competing in the 1975 series, Jones
started the first three 1974 events, ninth place at Mid-Ohio his
best placing. The executive recruiter at Executive Search
International in Beachwood, Ohio began racing in a Lotus Super 7
in 1965. Two years later he won the Central Division’s Formula A
championship and an invitation to the year-end “run-offs” but a
dead battery kept him from completing that event. Jones also
competed in the 1973 F/5000 series but was not a high finisher.
From 1969 through 1972, he campaigned Formula B racers in
SCCA National races as well as the Formula B
Championship/Continental series.
