Formula Ford FF200 Technical Specifications
In 2012, new specifications and regulations were introduced, allowing the use of the new Ford EcoBoost 1.6 Liter engine along with improvements in chassis design. Unlike its predecessors, that used Naturally aspirated engines and manual gearboxes, the EcoBoost car utilizes power from a turbocharged engine and a sequential gearbox. The chassis is a steel space-frame construction. The car complies with Formula Three safety standards, which involves mandatory crash structures, side-impact panels running the full height and length of the cockpit, an FIA-specified headrest and an extricable safety seat. In addition to the safety enhancements, some mandatory elements of bodywork shape have also been introduced.
