Premier 1 Grand Prix
It was intended that up to thirty football clubs were interested in being included as teams in Premier 1 Grand Prix and it had included Tottenham Hotspur, R.S.C. Anderlecht, Leeds United, Benfica, Olympique Lyonnais, Chelsea F.C., Valencia and Feyenoord to have included cars in a race series which held races on fifteen racing circuits in Europe, Latin America and Asia.
The cars in the series were intended to have the same power in effort to encourage higher competition. They were to have 6-speed pneumatic semi-automatic paddle-operated sequential gearbox and a 4-litre V10 engine giving in excess of 750 brake horsepower (560 kW). The total weight of the car and driver was to have been approximately 650 kg.
It had been set up by investors in 2000 but had collapsed in 2003 without staging a single race.
In 2005, the concept of Premier 1 Grand Prix became the Superleague Formula, which started its first race in 2008, however it was folded in 2011.
