Formula Asia V6 Renault, renamed Formula V6 Asia in 2007 by Motorsport Asia, was launched in 2006 and regulated by Motorsport Asia. Its a Formula Renault 3.5 that include also World Series by Renault and the former Formula Renault V6 Eurocup.

For the first time, Southeast Asian-based drivers were able to progress from karting, through the ranks of junior single seaters, and step up to a programme specifically designed to groom them for the pinnacle of international motorsport.
This Series was the latest addition to the Championships already organised by Motorsport Asia, namely the Asian Touring Car Championship, Formula BMW Asia and the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Series in the region's leading motorsport event, the Asian Festival of Speed.

The first championship, in 2006, was won by Indian driver Karun Chandhok, who beat fellow Asians Ananda Mikola and Hanss Lin to win the title.

The crowned driver was rewarded with a test in a World Series by Renault car at Paul Ricard [ [http://www.afos.com/news_full_fv6a.php?id=2121 Ebrahim Wins Grand Race while Winslow Crowned FV6A Champion] , 4/11/2007] .
