2021 Formula Regional European by Alpine

What's the suitable acronym for this? FREC? FRECBA?

At any rate, it has recently been announced that the Formula Renault Eurocup and the Formula Regional European Championship will merge in 2021, with the ACI continuing to run the series as per FREC, but with Alpine branded engines in the Tatuus regional F3 chassis. The superlicense points will apparently reflect those of the FREC (as opposed to the continuously shafted Eurocup series). Beyond that, not too many details have emerged.

One assumes that teams from both championships have a chance to apply. Teams can run up to 3 cars, with a possible 4th seat for a female driver. It seems as if it will run 10 rounds with the Eurocup's 2 race format. The calendar is likely to reflect the FREC, being mainly based out of Italy but travelling around Europe. It seems that other than from the official announcements, many teams have heard nothing else from the organisers of this merger.

Formula Scout have done a pretty solid job of covering it, so here are two articles with information on the merger:



I do wonder about this merger, given the grid size of Formula Renault compared to the dire grids in FREC. Other than Prema and VAR will any FREC teams jump across? Will Prema retain their status as the team to be in, given the likes of ART in the Eurocup? It should be an interesting off season with the chance of a grid of over 20 cars. I wanted to start this thread to document the shift, get the news rolling in, and get people's thoughts on this. To me it seems as if this is basically Renault gaining some superlicense points and contracting out their championship to ACI but given the general lack of information I could be totally misreading this.
