Charouz Racing System’s entry into the 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship has moved a step closer after the team took delivery of its first chassis and engine this week.

All of the teams on this season’s F2 grid will race identical, brand-new 2018-spec cars that have been constructed by Dallara in Italy. The cars will be powered by a new 3.4-litre, V6 turbocharged Mecachrome engine.

Charouz Racing System’s first chassis and engine package arrived this week and the team’s engineers are now working hard to familiarise themselves with the new car and prepare it for the F2 championship’s official shakedown on 14 February. The team’s second chassis and engine will arrive in the Czech Republic shortly afterwards.

“This is another step in our exciting F2 journey and everyone in the team is very happy to see the first car in our workshop,” team principal Bob Vavrik said. “We started working on our F2 programme a long time in advance so we’re already well prepared for the season ahead and on schedule.”

“This is the biggest motorsport programme we’ve put together by ourselves and it’s very exciting. We’re not just here to fill up the grid. We’re here to compete and the potential is very big for us.”

Drivers Louis Delétraz and Antonio Fuoco will drive Charouz Racing System’s first F2 chassis during the shakedown at Magny Cours. The team’s attention will then switch to the first official test of the new F2 season at Paul Ricard where it will run both of its cars for the first time.

We're not just here to fill up the grid. We're here to compete and the potential is very big for us.
