    So I'm asking again. Why shall the regulations push for engines which nobody produces anymore?

    You can't ignore the reality of today. Naturally aspirated engines are dead, nothing but past. The rules have to follow because FIA is not who changes the general direction of the automotive market.

    Read what I wrote. That "turbo 2WD issue" was only my opinion as spectator. Bigger problem is that FIA didnt showed what regulations will be for close future. Thats why some manufacturers, which were/are ready to start R2 project, are not working on it...

    You are both right.

    Current R2T is boring to watch and Non Turbo production cars are dead.
    And FIA are very slow.

    This is great news if it happens and touches on some of the things we talked about.

    No criteria was used to select the 1st 16 drivers. The criteria for shortlisting final 8 drivers is unknown. They will end up with another Lefebvre.
    Better if they had use Driving Scheme program..

    I agree that R1 is too weak enginewise, and R2 is too expensive for a youngster.

    Time to try to be concrete, on how a new class should look like.
    What way will then be the best way to develop the new car;
    1. Make a limit of 160 hp on the wheels of a R1+. Up to manufacturer to use 1600 NA or 1000 Turbo engine
    2. Make a R2- cheaper by making it simpler.

    Basic rules:
    Maximum 20 000 € for complete car, ready to race. Max 4000 € for the alternative suspension (gravel or asphalt)
    Possible to buy kit from manufacturer to build it youself.
    Tuners can build a car, no need for manufacturer homologation, as long as safety is approved by rules set by FIA.
    Minimum age: 16 years

    Ok guys, kill it - but you need to come with your own suggestion for a new class
