The Euroformula Open is preparing the 2024 season, the 16th since it is run on a continental scale and the 11th under its current denomination.
In 2024 the series will continue to provide a top class technical platform to young talents that graduate to F.3-level racing, which includes the Dallara 320 chassis, unanimously acclaimed as the best car in the segment, the choice between two different engines (Spiess and HWA), and Pirelli tyres, following the partnership agreement initiated last year.
The calendar will again include 8 rounds on the most prestigious F.1-grade tracks in Europe, with the novelty of Hockenheim being reintroduced and ensuring eight different countries are visited. The event format, with three races per round and an additional day of private testing in four of those rounds, provides oe of the most interesting options in the industry in terms of track time.
All these strengths have allowed the Euroformula Open to play a key contributing role in the motorsports pyramid. The list of EFO alumni having reached F.1 includes Carlos Sainz, Yuki Tsunoda and Liam Lawson (with Felipe Drugovich and Mick Doohan as reserve drivers), while former EFO drivers shining in IndyCar include double champion Alex Palou, Colin Herta and Linus Lundqvist. Many others have become top professional drivers in sportscars and GT, with Yifei Ye, Ferdinand Habsburg and Marino Sato in the ranks of works teams in the reborn WEC this year.
Jesús Pareja, CEO of GT Sport, commented: “We are excited ahead of the new season, after the great racing seen last year, and confident that the Euroformula will further grow. We strongly believe in the good fundamentals of our proposition, from the car to tyres, calendar and event format. We will continue to build on those and to evolve as the single-seater formulae market enters a phase of transformation.”
