EPIC Racing[1] (Euskadi Phil Imanol Claudio Racing) is a racing team from Spain, The team's headquarters are located in Azkoitia (Gipuzkoa). It is the only major motorsport team from the Basque Country, (Euskadi). Epsilon Euskadi ran their own team in World Series by Renault and Formula Renault before renaming the racing division EPIC Racing in 2011. In 2008 the team participated in sports car racing for the first time with their Epsilon Euskadi ee1 car.

Bid for Formula One[edit]

Although the team announced on June 3, 2009 that it had submitted an entry for the Formula 1 World Championship for 2010, the FIA did not list them amongst the 13 teams in the preliminary entry list released on June 12, 2009. They were however placed on the reserve list in case one of the 13 teams withdrew, but the withdrawal of USF1 took place too late for this contingency to operate.[2]

In March 2010 Epsilon Euskadi announced it applied to enter the 2011 Formula One championship, following the failure of US F1 to use the entry they had been granted.[3] This application was also unsuccessful.
