Formula First is an entry level single seater racing class where the emphasis is on driver skill and race-craft rather than horsepower or budget. It is a relatively low-cost formula and provides the best place to start a car racing career. Formula First racing is one of the closest forms of motorsport you'll ever see. Since the cars are all powered with the same 1200cc engines, races often come down to tactics and positioning, rather than outright car speed. It is common to have the first three or four cars finishing within .3 or .4 of a second of one another.
