Zytek To Supply Engines For Formula Renault 3.5 Series

Zytek Engineering has been chosen to supply the engine for the Formula Renault 3.5 Series 2012 – 2014. The Repton based manufacturer was a logical choice, as its incredibly reliable engines have been the specified power units for Formula 3000, A1GP and the Auto GP series. Zytek engines have also won in class at Le Mans and powered Zytek’s own chassis to overall victories in the Le Mans Series and American Le Mans Series races, along with the LMS LMP2 drivers and team championships in 2009.

The engine has been specifically designed for the Formula Renault 3.5 car. A 3.4-litre V8, code named the ZRS03, will generate 530bhp at 9,250rpm, fifty more horsepower than the series current engine.

In selecting partners for the series, Renault Sport Technologies stated that it had “enlisted the services of the best suppliers around."

John Manchester, Zytek Engineering Operations Director: “Zytek is extremely privileged to have been chosen as the engine manufacturer for such a high profile racing series. To have the opportunity to form a partnership with such a respected brand as Renault is indeed an honor. Zytek has over 16 years experience supplying engines for single make racing formula and we are sure that we can make a contribution to help make what is already a very successful racing series even more successful."
