This new one-make single-seater formula will feature drivers from around the world racing on the Grand Prix tracks of Europe in exciting head-to-head competition. With all the cars identical, the best young driver in the world should win. However, as all the cars are the same, preparation becomes very important so the young driver has to learn to work with his team to find the set-up that will give him victory.

The cars are all-carbon-composite single seaters made by Reynard, the famous Champ-car constructor. Engines are 3.5 liter V6's from the Chrysler 300M / Dodge Intrepid, tuned to give 310 horse power and 270 ft-lb of torque.

Races take place at the Grand Prix circuits in Italy (Monza), Britain (Silverstone), France (Magny-Cours), Austria (A1-Ring), Hungary (Budapest), Germany (Nurburgring). In addition there are races at three former Grand Prix circuits (Estoril - Portugal, Zolder - Belgium, Jarama - Spain) and the famous sports-car circuit of Brno, Czech Republic.

We expect to have a field made up of 15 teams from all over Europe, and 30 drivers from around the world. The last competition which we ran included drivers from USA, France, Germany, Holland, Britain, Belgium, Japan, South Africa, Brazil, Chile, Uraguay, Canada, Spain, Portugal and India. We expect the same broad mix of drivers in the new International Single-Seater Challenge.
