"THE ULTIMATE ARRIVE & DRIVE CHAMPIONSHIP"

 

Showcasing Talent, Developing Race Craft, with a Focus on Seat Time    and an Eye on Safety, all while Making Racing More Affordable and Financially Rewarding!!! 

The Formula Americas Super GP Championship is a professional, arrive & drive, open-wheel competition in updated and identically prepared FIA homologated carbon chassis race cars designed and built by French race car constructor, Mygale to meet or exceed FIA 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, crash damage insurance). Designed as a competition for drivers of all ages and as young as 14 looking to advance in professional auto racing, Formula Americas Super GP 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 field of drivers participating in professional open-wheel racing. A Prize Fund totaling $360,000 with the Champion having the opportunity of taking home over $150,000 in cash 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 cash award and a free second season in Formula Americas Super GP.

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 group of drivers. With all cars set up identically, true equality is reached where winning comes down to talent, not who can afford the best engineer or equipment. A true level playing field where both men and women compete on an equal stage.

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 race circuits and winning a lot of money along the way.

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 much more expensive series and will provide young drivers with the proper preparation for entry into series like the FIA F4 Championships, the Road to Indy and other open-wheel Series. 

 

All-Inclusive Championship: 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, even crash damage insurance is included. Formula Americas drivers also receive Championship branded apparel. 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 Gala to be held on the night of the final race of the season. Additional passes and tickets will be available.

Limited Grid: The season is limited to 18 available seats and they will be filled on a first come first served basis, so get your registration in early. To register or for additional information, contact us right away.

Why do we limit the field to 18 cars? Packed fields of 30 plus cars is exciting to watch, 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. Driver safety is paramount and crashing out is not much fun, especially when you're taken out by someone else. Limiting the field to 18 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's no worry whether your engineer is better than the other guy's, as the cars are all set up to be equal, thereby creating close, competitive racing. 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 and managers.

Drivers will receive a different car at each event 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.
