2019 Euroformula Open
Previous: 2018 Next: 2020

The 2019 Euroformula Open Championship is a multi-event motor racing championship for single-seat open wheel formula racing cars that held across Europe. The championship features drivers competing in two-litre Formula Three racing cars built by Italian constructor Dallara which conform to the technical regulations, or formula, for the championship. It is the sixth Euroformula Open Championship season.

For the first time since inception, the championship features multiple power unit manufacturers, allowing to use Mercedes and Volkswagen engines. It is scheduled to have equalised performance of the powerplants, in terms of both power and torque like in the GT3 racing.[1] But the equalisation was not successful as the teams that used Toyota engine which was tuned by Piedrafita had a lack of power in comparison with Mercedes and Volkswagen engines. The situation led to the withdrawal of the teams after the first round and switching to the Mercedes and Volkswagen engine prior round at Spa.[2]

All teams utilize a Dallara F317 chassis.[3]
