"2017 Formula Challenge Season" table of contents
The GPVWC Formula Challenge is an established series at the league which features two short races. The qualifying session which precedes these races is a conventional 15-minute qualifying session. Featuring the entry-level cars in the Career Ladder, Formula Challenge is the second of two series which take place on the Tuesdays of Career Ladder weeks every other week.
The series is aimed towards developing drivers and teams into potential Supercup candidates, with the cars being slower and not featuring as many setup options as their more complex siblings. The series switched from turbocharged 4-cylinder engines to naturally aspirated V6 engines for 2017. Setup options were simplified, placing a greater emphasis on driver skill. The wet tyre compounds received an adjustment to grip levels and the low downforce package was removed, leaving a single wing package available for use.
