The Formula Masters China Series is an incredible driver development series in the South East Asian Region with races in Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia, and Ordos International Circuit in China. A Tatuus chassis powers the series with a 185 hp 2.0L Volkswagen engine that comes in a 6-speed Sadev paddle-shift gearbox.

The partnership of the Giti-Formula V1 Series in the Philippines with Eurasia Motorsport comes with a once in a lifetime opportunity for a Formula V1 driver to test the single-seater FMCS car in a Formula 1-grade track. This is a significant step up for FV1 drivers, for whatever future they hope to earn as a professional racer.
