The Costs

finale  The Costs

Formula Gulf now enters its 5 season. Over the past 4 seasons drivers have graduated onto Formula Renault, F4, F3, Indy Lights, Pro Mazda, Asia GT Series, World Rally Championship & Porsche Cup. All these drivers benefited from a low budget but high value winter season with Formula Gulf.

We believe you wont find any fully supported Single Seater championship in the world right now under US$100,000! In fact a season in BRDC F4 can easily be $180,000, making a season in Formula Gulf for $75,000 a very good option.

Season Budget

Full 14 x race season (7 Events) plus 1 x pre-season test AED276,000 (Aprox. € 67,000 or $75,000).

There is an incentive price of AED 236,000 for drivers that pay for the whole season and with one payment.
