Euroformula has attracted its first driver for 2024, with Hungarian racer Levente Revesz signing with Motopark.

The German team has run the majority of the entries in the championship over the last few seasons, and fielded the last five champions through its main operation and its Japanese satellite squad CryptoTower Racing Team.

Revesz will be embarking on his fourth year of single-seater racing. He started off in Italian Formula 4 in 2021, coming 31st in the standings with two points.

He stepped up to Formula Regional for 2022, and was 23rd and 28th respectively in the Asian and European championships. Although he scored more in 2023, he came 25th in both the European and Middle East championships and did not get a top-five finish until he decided to leave FREC with two rounds to go and join Motopark in Euroformula.

Stepping up to the Formula 3-level series proved immediately effective. The 18-year-old finished fifth on debut at Monza then took two podiums, at Mugello he finished sixth and fourth, then at Barcelona he took a fifth place, a win and a seventh to rise up to ninth in the standings.

“I’m very much looking forward to attacking the new season in Euroformula together with Motopark,” said Revesz. “Last season we made great progress on the last three events, and we will keep that momentum going into the upcoming season. I have grown close to the team already as a result we can communicate very effectively, which will surely benefit us.”

Motopark’s team principal Timo Rumpfkeil added: “During the races Levi did with us in 2023 he progressed very well and secured well-deserved podiums and his maiden race win. He has done a good winter test programme with us, I am confident that he is well prepared for the 2024 season and will be a strong contender for the 2024 championship.”

In this month’s development update from racing simulator game iRacing, a statement was made that indicated Euroformula and Super Formula Lights will replace their Dallara 320 car with a successor design this season:

“In March, we will keep up this momentum [of bringing new cars to the game] with the addition of the Dallara 324, which is essentially the little brother of the [Dallara] SF23. In the real world, variants of this car are raced in the SF Lights series and the Euroformula Open championship. In iRacing, this car will be positioned at the C level.”

Euroformula has denied it will change cars this year, but told Formula Scout that introducing the Dallara 324 as its spec chassis in 2025 is an option.

SF Lights meanwhile announced last June that it would break with its roots by becoming a spec series for 2024. From its creation in 1979 as Japanese F3, and following its rebranding and adoption of the Dallara 320 four years ago, the series has been open to multiple engine suppliers.

After several month of development by TOM’S, a new 1.6-litre turbocharged engine manufactured by Toyota has got approval to replace the naturally aspirated Spiess and TOM’S units previously used in the Dallara 320.
