For almost two decades, the husband and wife team of JP and Jeanette Tuason has been actively helping many a champion racer reach their dream. From karting to touring cars, Tuason Racing School (TRS) has been giving both professional and grassroots-level participants a legitimate shot at achieving their racing and motorsports aspirations.
With numerous achievements under its belt, one would wonder what comes next for TRS? JP and Jeanette gamely answered this by giving a sneak preview of their newest baby, the Formula V1 formula kit car. Built in partnership with West Race Cars Japan (itself also founded by a husband and wife tandem), the Formula V1 is a lightweight racer intended for intermediate racers.
When we say lightweight, we’re talking about a 530kg tubular chassis that is reinforced with aluminum panels, giving the sole occupant optimum protection. The featherweight racer is powered by a 1.5-liter 1NZ motor that packs 110hp. This allows it to reach a top speed of 200kph.
