Charouz Racing System is one of the newest teams to join the FIA Formula 2 Championship grid.

But we bring a wealth of experience and race-winning success to our 2018 racing programme.

Competing in some of the world’s toughest single-seater categories for the last 12 seasons, we arrive in F2 after dominating both the Drivers’ and Teams’ Championships in the 2017 Formula V8 3.5 series.

With a proud association to the Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA) in 2018, our established and experienced team of engineers and technicians will be aiming to guide our drivers Louis Delétraz and Antonio Fuoco to race-winning success in F2 this season.

Charouz Racing System operates from a modern engineering centre that is located in Zebrak, close to Prague in the Czech Republic.

Our motorsport preparation department is housed in a newly-refurbished 2,500 square metre facility. This is where our F2 and F4 race teams are based, as well as our Formula V8 3.5 test team.

As well as fully-equipped workshops and offices, our race teams also benefit from having modern production and engineering facilities on-site, as well as a fully-equipped race engine dyno and a damper dyno – crucial for unlocking race-winning performance.

We have also invested in a state-of-the-art simulator that allows our drivers to ‘virtually’ put their race car through its paces on laser-scanned race circuits.
