The car

We are building a brand new car for Formula Pro and Formula Challenge! While we’re keeping the car under wraps for now, below are some of the specs of the car. We’re extracting 800 HP from an 18000 RPM screaming engine. 680 KG is leaning on the tires at standstill, with an additional 2400 KG worth of downforce leaning on top of that at speed! To keep the car in top shape during all your Formula Series races, the car is fitted with some serious tires, meaty brakes, and double wishbone suspension with 3rd elements all-round.

This will be one rapid machine we’ll be using in our new Formula Series. Check out the full car reveal on June 30!
