The Fantasy GP2 Series, GP2 for short, is a Motor Racing Management Series introduced in 2006 following the discontinuation of the long-term FF1M feeder series, FF2M. The format was conceived by Ajayrious and is based on the real life GP2 Series.

Designed to make racing affordable for the teams and to make it the perfect training ground for life in FF1M, GP2 has made it mandatory for all of the teams to use the same chassis, engine and tyre supplier so that true driver ability is reflected. All races will take place as support races at FF1M race weekends to boost the series' profile, to give drivers experience on the Grand Prix environment, and to take advantage of the infrastructure (marshalls, medical facilities etc.) in place for a FF1M event. All races will be held on European circuits.

Series Specification

The GP2 Series car is to be used by all of the teams, and features a Dallara chassis powered by a V8 Renault engine and Pirelli tyres.

Team Managers are no longer be able to choose the power ratios between Qualifying and the Race.

Race weekend

On Friday, drivers have a 30-minute qualifying session. The qualifying session decides the grid order for Saturday's race which has a length of 180 kilometres.

During Saturday's race, each driver has to make one pit stop for tyres. This can be taken at any time from lap 2 to the penultimate lap of the race.

On Sunday there is a sprint race of 120 kilometres. The grid is decided by the Saturday result with top 8 being reversed, so the driver who finished 8th on Saturday will start from pole position and the winner will start from 8th place.
