The first car for the new International Single-Seater Challenge (ISSC) has begun to take shape at the Brackley factory of famous racing car constructor Reynard.

This new car, which will be powered by a 3.5 litre Chrysler V-6 engine, will form the basis of a new one-make international racing series which will take place next year on most of Europe's famous Grand Prix circuits.

As the carbon-fibre monocoque and nose box, which will be submitted to FIA crash test procedures in the next few weeks, are built at Brackley, the V-6 all-aluminium engine is already undergoing bench testing and is currently predicted to exceed the 300 horse power design specification. Track testing of a complete car will commence in July.

Some of Europe's top single-seater teams are already looking at this car with a view to running it in next year's Championship. Series Organisers ERO are predicting a minimum of 20 cars out for the first race of next season.
