Formula Rus Championship

The Formula Rus Championship is a single-make Formula Rus series. Teams and drivers are restricted from making any changes to the car. The series organizers provide technical service to series participants and guarantee that all cars are identical, including car setup.

In the five short years of its existence Formula Rus has become a unique and fully-fledged motor racing series, for which there are no parallels in the Russian Federation – Formula RUS has gained a steady stream of admirers both at the circuit and also complimented with regular broadcasting on Russian and European television.

The basic concept and mission of Formula RUS is to provide a practical and realistic platform for the novice racing driver, with an emphasis on the provision of a sound education and development of race craft. This allows the talented driver to propel him or herself on their way into the exciting world of international motor racing.

For many young, aspiring racing talents Formula RUS has been the first step into the world of racing. Over the last few years it has helped open up the door to a long and hard road for a number of drivers, some of whom have achieved varying degrees of success. Previous Formula RUS drivers are already appearing on some of the pages of the western press alongside those of their internationally recognised peers.

In 1999 (and for the very first time in Russian motor racing history), the concept of a mono-class, low budget, racing car first came about, and as a direct result of this concept and idea, the first batch of cars were produced. Formula RUS came to life. The car was designed so that it could be used for training drivers with very little racing experience and also for the purpose of taking part in official competitions. This project was completely carried out by AKKS Motorsport in 2001.

Since 2002 and after having undergone a full and thorough testing programme Formula RUS now has over seventy cars in its stable – over thirty of which are in operation at any one time, the series has now established its reputation for safety and reliability and as a car that is easy to maintain.

Additionally, since 2002, Formula RUS has carried out the «Formula RUS Championship», which in 2003 was granted the status of the Championship of Russia.

During the five years of its existence, the formula has taken part in more than seventy races and carried out more than one hundred and seventy testing days. The series has also trained over two hundred and sixty racing drivers of ages ranging from sixteen to sixty – all of them with various degrees of racing skills and abilities and from the many various regions of the Russian Federation and the CIS.

Almost all of the current, successful and well known Russian racing drivers, owe the start of their careers in motorsport to Formula RUS, notable names include: Sergey Afanasev, Sergey Romaschenko, Daniil Move, Ivan Samarin, Vitaly Petrov, Evgeniy Novikov, Kirill Ovcharenko, Maxim Travin, Sergey Mokshantsev, Yuri Baiborodov, Alexander Tyuryumin, and David Мarkоzоv.

All of these racing drivers are now widely known and respected throughout Europe, their reputation has been achieved with the help and training of Formula RUS the series which all other class’s of Russian motor sports can only envy and aspire to.

In 2007 Formula RUS, continues to go from strength to strength, with regional and national TV and media coverage – coupled with more young and aspiring drivers; joining the Formula RUS team.
