2012 Formula Ford EuroCup season
Previous: 2011 Next: 2013

The 2012 Formula Ford EuroCup was the second season of the Formula Ford EuroCup championship. The season began at Brands Hatch on 23 June and ended on 29 July at Nürburgring, after four meetings in four different countries each consisting of three races; each meeting had its own respective winner.[1]

Finnish driver Antti Buri won all three races at the opening meeting at Brands Hatch to take the season's inaugural EuroCup title,[2] before his team boss Nick Tandy – returning to single-seaters – repeated the feat at Spa-Francorchamps.[3] The only driver to claim more than one EuroCup title was Eric Lichtenstein, who claimed each of the last two events at Zandvoort and the Nürburgring.[4][5]
