Formula Vostok



What is special in the name «Formula Vostok»:

The name of the new series "Formula Vostok" isn't casual, it shows connection between generations, continuation of motorsport history, its traditions. Having begun since 1972 "Formula Easter" was a uniform class for ring races in socialist countries of Eastern Europe. The national ring races championships in this series passed in the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, GDR, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria. All these countries were united by a Friendship Cup - some kind of championship of Eastern Europe. Participation and furthermore a victory in the Cup of Friendship of the socialist countries was sometimes a  career top for racers of Eastern Europe.

The cup steadily brought together the best of the best racers of the socialist countries. For those seventeen years that it was carried out within "Formula Easter", eight times it was won by representatives of Czechoslovakia, five times - GDR and three times – the USSR. From the Soviet racers there were: Estonian Madias Laiv in 1975, Tomas Nappa in 1987 and to the Muscovite Victor Kozankov in 1988.

The high-quality car for reasonable price



Considering a situation with traditionally high budget for pilots and teams on participation in competitions, ArtlLine designed the new high-quality car for reasonable price.


 It is difficult to overestimate the importance of a formed class for Russia and CIS - since the USSR athletes wait a domestic series for continuation of racing career after karting. For many of them it is a step to the top of formular sports. And we believe Vostok series will also attract and unite teams and young drivers from different countries.


 Some devices according to our drawings are still produced by the foreign enterprises, but we can see also domestic factories which will be able to make ArtLine's orders. It will allow not only to reduce the cost of accessories, but also to give the positive development of the Russian automobile industry.


The infrastructure for successful implementation of the project in Russia is already well developed: the network of stationary autodromes is constructed. By next year it is enough to release 20−24 cars to create a serious series.

ArtLine invites all the interested sides to forse the process.
