"THE ULTIMATE ARRIVE & DRIVE CHAMPIONSHIP"

 

Showcasing Talent, Developing Race Craft, with a Focus on Seat Time    while Making Racing More Affordable and Financially Rewarding, developing a more Diverse Group of Professional Drivers!!! 

The Formula Americas Super GP Championship presented by Pirelli is a professional, arrive & drive, open-wheel competition in updated and identically prepared carbon chassis race cars designed and built by Mygale to stringent FIA homologation safety standards, while showcasing each driver’s talent, not their checkbook. Arrive & drive meaning we include everything in the entry fee (the race car, tires, fuel, crew). Designed as a competition for drivers of all ages and as young as 14 looking to advance in professional auto racing, Formula Americas costs as low as $12,990 per 3-race event and consists of 15 races held over 5 race event weekends at some of the most popular circuits in America. Formula Americas is a "One Make, One Team, One Cost" Championship producing a level playing field for all participants and at the most affordable price of any professional open-wheel racing series, thereby promoting a more diverse group of drivers participating in professional open-wheel racing. Cash Awards and Scholarships totaling over $300,000 and with the Champion having the opportunity of taking home over $150,000 and the option of the Advancement Scholarship which includes the choice of either a fully funded season in the FIA NACAM F4 Championship or the $100,000 Championship-winning Prize Money.

Formula Americas low price point makes it economically obtainable for more young men and women of all backgrounds to enter the world of professional racing, thereby producing a more diverse field of drivers.

But Formula Americas Super GP doesn't have to be just a stepping stone. It can also be a destination. Drivers can compete in the Championship for many years enjoying strong competition at great tracks and winning a lot of money along the way.

Formula Americas Super GP features the Mygale FB02 powered by BMW. This is a proven platform for developing future racing stars in Formula BMW. Drivers like Formula1 and IndyCar stars; Nico Rosberg, Sebastian Vettel, Robert Wickens, Alexander Rossi, Nico Hulkenberg, Marcus Erickson, Gabby Chaves and Felipe Nasr have all driven Mygale FB02 race cars to win Championships in the early stages of their careers.

The Formula Americas Super GP Championship is the ideal formula car series to gain winged car experience coming out of karting or other junior formula. Racing in Formula Americas will provide cost-effective and extensive experience before jumping into a much more expensive series and will provide young drivers with the proper preparation for entry into series like the FIA F4 Championships, USF2000 and other open-wheel Series.

All Inclusive Race Series: Formula Americas is an all inclusive, Arrive & Drive racing series where your only other expenses are your personal travel, hotel accommodations and driver safety gear. Formula Americas drivers also receive a Championship branded polo shirt and soft-shell jacket. Each Driver will receive 2 passes for themselves and a guest to the Formula Americas VIP Hospitality suite at all events and 2 tickets to the Championship Awards Banquet to be held on the night of the final race of the season. Additional passes and tickets will be available.

Limited Grid: The 2021 season is limited to 12 available seats and they will be filled on a first come first served basis, so get your entries in early. To register or for additional information, contact us right away. A Registration Form is available for download on the bottom of this page and on the forms page for those drivers who would like to secure their spot in the 2021 Championship.

Why do we limit the field to 12 cars? Racing in packed fields of 30 plus cars is exciting at the start, but paying for crash damage isn't. We find at this level of racing large fields of cars result in numerous crashes and extended caution periods, which result in very few green flag race laps and large damage bills for drivers or their parents. What are you supposed to learn in 4-5 laps of racing? And, its not much fun, especially when you're taken out by someone else. Limiting the field to 12 cars gives our drivers more room to maneuver and results in a greater amount of green flag racing, while producing exciting and very competitive races. Afterall, Its not much fun driving behind the pace car for the majority of your race.

Level Playing Field: All cars are owned by the Championship, maintained and set up to be equal by the Championship's engineers to ensure a level playing field for all drivers. Formula Americas is a true Driver's Championship where winning is based on talent, not how much money you can spend. There is no need to purchase your own car or pay a team to run you. There's no worry whether your engineer is better than the other guy's, as the cars are all equal. We take care of it all. All you need to do is concentrate on perfecting your driving skills and driving at your very best. Talent shines here and will be noticed by upper level team owners.

Drivers will receive a different car at each event. We do this to remove any perception that a driver may have of feeling stuck for the season with an unequal car. At the conclusion of each event, drivers will blind pick a numbered ball in a drawing that will correlate to the car's chassis number that they will drive in the following event. Numbers will be drawn in reverse finishing order of the event's final race. Numbers will be picked at the conclusion of each event, so that the crew can make the proper pedal, steering wheel and weight adjustments for each driver prior to the next event. Drivers will keep their own personal car number for the full season.

Race-Proven CarsFormula Americas utilizes the race proven Mygale FB02 carbon chassis built to stringent FIA safety standards and updated with newer aerodynamics and paddle shifters. The cars of the Formula Americas Super GP Championship are powered by race-prepared 4-cylinder BMW engines producing 145 horsepower and weighing only 465kg delivering the highest power to weight ration in its class. Power is transmitted through a 6-speed sequential paddle-shift operated Hewland gearbox and run on Pirelli PZero slick tires. They feature advanced aerodynamics with adjustable multi-element front and rear wings generating significant downforce. All engines are dyno-tested to insure parity. All cars carry on-board cameras and data acquisition.
