Formula 5000 REVIVED! Formula-Thunder-1

http://www.speedcafe.com/2016/03/31/modern-formula-5000-category-launched/

What do you think? Why hasn't this happened before, really? A high-performance, shameless throwback open-wheel formula, mimicking something held dear. I think it looks really exciting!

It will be a spec series so not much to do with the old one ...
Can't say the car looks pretty from the front too Neutral

Just hoping that this isn't an April Fool.
We need this in the UK as we now have no major single seater racing.

It was posted on the morning of the 31st.  Wink

That it is spec doesn't matter. Sounds like a great formula for a shameless throwback thing!
