Formula 5000 returns in a retailored jacket. The name is ‘Formula Thunder 5000’ and it will indeed be loud. Very loud.
After IndyCar has been confirmed through 2018 to be the main attraction at one of the most prestigious street races in the world - followed by a pseudo-bidding war with F1 -, American open-wheel racing returns for another round to the west coast city of Long Beach this weekend.
Apparently, a deal was struck last weekend - just before the race in Bahrain - between Bernie Ecclestone and the FIA to do something with F1's engine noises. Here's a tip I am suggesting for consideration.
It isn't just Formula 1 that took a leap of faith for 2014, but one of the most hardcore single-seater categories as well. The best-ever sounding V8-based, open cockpit Super Formula (aka Formula Nippon) has turned their priorities to show off some propelled forced induction, going super touring later on.
