Easy formula, une ecole de pilotage leader en europe
Launched in 2008, the Superleague Formula championship was a championship in direct competition with Formula 1. Thanks to their V12 engine and state-of-the-art aerodynamics, the Panoz DP09B – MCTs equipping the teams have delighted spectators around the world.
Announced with great noise in 2005 and quickly approved by the FIA, this one-make championship was based on the ambitious premise that fans of two of the most popular sports in the world, soccer and motor racing, could unite around the same competition. For this, 20 single-seaters had to wear the colors of the biggest football clubs in the world. The technical part was provided by renowned teams.
On August 31, 2008, 17 shiny single-seaters lined up at Donington for the launch of the Championship. The grid looks good and the drivers have responded, notably with Tristan Gommendy and Nelson Philippe. The inaugural race will be won by Davide Rigon who will be titled at the end of the season for Beijing Guoan ahead of PSV Eindhoven, AC Milan and FC Liverpool.
The formula was renewed in 2009 and 2010 with the arrival of Olympique Lyonnais and Girondins de Bordeaux, while several former Formula 1 drivers joined the series such as Sébastien Bourdais, Franck Montagny and Antonio Pizzonia.
In 2011, following the withdrawal of the title sponsor, it was decided to associate the teams still present with nations from the defunct A1 GP, the cars racing under the colors of a country from now on. But the heart and the resources are gone and after the second race in Zolder the Superleague adventure comes to an end.
The success of Superleague Formula, albeit short-lived, rested in large part on the car used: the Panoz DP09B, a spectacular single-seater that would have deserved a much better fate.
The carbon monocoque was developed by Panoz on the basis of the latest generation of ChampCar. Carbone Industrie brake discs, Brembo calipers, Koni shock absorbers and since it is a real racing car, no driving assistance!
The realization of the engine was entrusted to Menard who designed a 4.2L V12 of 750hp at a speed of 12,000 revolutions / minute. Reliable and robust, this engine can operate in extreme conditions.
In 2014, the Easy Formula structure bought all of the cars produced, their engines and especially the intellectual property of all the parts. The team has since been committed to rebuilding these magnificent cars and it is now possible to purchase them.
Every car that comes out of the Easy Formula workshop has been completely rebuilt. The engine and gearbox have been overhauled and all safety features are up to date.
Thanks to its huge stock of spare parts, Easy Formula can guarantee the use of Superleague Formula for many years.
