1994 FIA International Formula 3000 Championship
Previous: 1993 Next: 1995

The 1994 Formula 3000 International Championship was the tenth season of Formula 3000 in Europe. Jean-Christophe Boullion won the championship after eight rounds.

Technical changes[edit]

After a year out of Europe, Lola returned with an extensively developed new car. Reynard was still the dominant manufacturer, and retained many components from its previous car while introducing an F1-style high nose.

The regulation requiring long sidepods was removed, which meant that the cars became less pitch-sensitive.[1] The long “vortex generators” on the front wing endplates were banned as part of an ongoing effort to reduce costs.[2]
