The Formula 600 Challenge series was developed to help promote an affordable open wheel formula car to showcase talent without large financial race budgets. The Formula 600 open wheel cars use a 600cc motorcycle engine and a 6 speed sequential transmission revving up to 14,000 rpm with speeds in excess of 135 mph. The sound of this drive train is likened to a F1 car.
