Yorkshire-based company called Perrinn, started designing a F1 car with the 2016 F1 technical regulations, it is their goal to deliver a winning car for the pinnacle of Motorsport.
According to a report in Racecar Engineering, Perrinn has come up with the brilliant proposal of developing and building cars to the 2016 FIA Formula One Technical Regulations without actually fielding a team. The aim is to provide a for-profit rental service to young drivers who want experience in current F1 machinery during these times of restricted testing.
The 2016 Super Licence regulations require a driver to clock up at least 300km in a Formula 1 car built after 2011. Currently this tends to mean that drivers must pay teams very large sums of money to drive what the FIA calls ‘Previous Cars’ essentially an otherwise obsolete V8 powered design. The mileage can be accumulated using a 2014 or 2015 design, (‘Current Cars’ in FIA parlance) but the cost of the power units is thought to be prohibitive, leaving young drivers few opportunities to get up to the required mileage without a substantial financial outlay.
