Formula One Constructors' Association

Formula One Constructors' Association
Abbreviation FOCA
Formation 1974
Chief Executive
Bernie Ecclestone (1978-)

The Formula One Constructors' Association (FOCA) was an organization of the FISA. The eventual resolution of this conflict saw Ecclestone take a more significant role in the running of the sport with the formation of FOA (Formula One Administration).

Following the disqualification of Nelson Piquet and Keke Rosberg from the 1982 Brazilian Grand Prix, numerous FOCA-aligned teams including McLaren, Williams and Brabham boycotted the San Marino Grand Prix. Four FOCA-aligned teams - Tyrrell, Osella, ATS and Toleman - broke their stated boycott and started the race anyway.
