  3. Formula Renault 3.5 Series

The World Series Formula V8 3.5, previously known as the World Series by Nissan and Formula Renault 3.5 Series, was a motor racing series promoted by RPM Racing and Renault Sport. Originating from the Spanish Formula Renault Championship, it was founded as Open Fortuna by Nissan in 1998 and underwent several name changes over the years. The series used chassis built by Coloni initially, with a 2.0 L Nissan SR20 engine, before transitioning to Dallara chassis and a VQ30 engine in 2002. In 2005, Renault started the World Series by Renault, merging it with the Formula Renault V6 Eurocup. In 2016, the series was renamed Formula V8 3.5 and then World Series Formula V8 3.5 in 2017
