About the Formula Foundation

A truly ground-breaking fully electric single seater racing programme from the BRSCC

Formula Foundation is a ground-breaking fully electric single-seater racing project that has been well over a year in development, and the stunning electric race car has been conceptualised, designed, engineered and built in the UK.

This is a hugely exciting project for the BRSCC and their project partners RSR Technology Ltd, with the series being aimed at delivering the world’s first club level single seater EV racing opportunity. Formula Foundation is focussed not only toward privateer drivers, but race teams looking to support drivers who may be interested in developing a career in the rapidly growing world of EV racing.

The race car is built by RSR Technologies Ltd around an ultra-safe FIA spec T45 & ROPT CDS grade steel tubular space frame, which is the world’s first steel race car chassis to incorporate a cockpit/ driver protection system. With the highest levels of safety at the forefront of the design, the car also features F1 style 8-tonne rated wheel retaining tethers on all 4 hubs.

The drivetrain position, steering, suspension and braking system layout is as per “traditional” single seat cars, with the ECOClassics designed battery pack and EV power unit positioned behind the driver and driving the rear wheels.

The 120kW (160bhp) power unit enables a 0-60mph time of around 3 seconds, with a top speed of +130mph. This level of managed performance has been chosen to deliver a genuinely quick single seat race car experience for drivers, but whilst retaining maximum durability, reliability and cost-effectiveness.

Battery charging is by way of readily available 240v 32A outlets, with the option of a CCS DC fast charge system. The steel encased 18kWh 350V DC Li-ion battery pack has been designed to meet ECE R100 requirements and enables multiple “sprint race” sessions of 20 minutes on a single charge, with no specialist recharging equipment or services required.
