Not quite a Formula 1 car, I would say.

But don't tell Putin!  ;)

What car is that? One video it looks like an F3 car but maybe that's due to image stretching.

To me it looks like some very, very basic and quite old show car. The sidepods for instance look veeery basic to me.

Looks like an F1 car from the early naughties and a Formula Renault (2.0?).

Why would Renault have an old Prost F1 car?

Would that "Renault" have a Renault engine or the Ferrari engine that Prost used in 2001?

Becasue there are number of companies oferring paid experiences in race cars. Some of them have Prost car on they offer.

The engines are not in real F1 specs. Quite detuned (for milage reasons) to be honest. To around 450-500 hp.

Still they provide awesome thrill to drive. Especially id driver wants to do something more that driving back and forth on airfield

I hope all wheel were properly tightened for that run, or some gulag years would be neccesary for mechanic. ;-)

Looks like they've been doing it for a while http://forums.autosp...a...t&p=3486491

At some point they must have purchased it from Phoenix Finance after their failed attempt to race in 2002.
