Owens is official F2 turbo supplier

07 July 2009

The inaugural FIA Formula Two race meeting over the weekend of 29th-31st May not only marked the return of a well loved series, it also represented Owen Development's debut on the starting grid for a major international single seater championship.

That's because each of the 25 F2 cars uses a specially developed Owen Developments Garrett GT? ball bearing turbocharger, which helps to reliably boost the series' production based VAG 1.8T 20-valve control engine to power outputs of up to 450bhp.

Owen Development's experience in motorsport turbocharger design, manufacture and logistics support - allied to its unique technical relationship with Garrett? in the USA - has enabled the Oxfordshire based forced induction specialists to produce a ball bearing unit that provides reliable, responsive performance for the entire F2 grid.

Working in tandem with renowned motorsport power plant specialists Mountune Racing, the end result is a F2 engine that produces 400bhp @ 8250rpm on standard boost, with a 50bhp driver operated temporary overboost facility available. To ensure performance equality, F2 engines are specified to be 1.5% of the target power output, with each power plant using the sophisticated Pi Research Pectel MQ12 engine management system.

Commenting on the F2 project, Lee Owen said "Owen Developments has a long history of motorsport involvement but the opportunity of supplying Garrett GT? turbochargers to the FIA Formula Two series has been very special. Our excellent working relationship with Mountune Racing and the F2 championship technical team has enabled us to develop a ball bearing turbocharger unit that delivers on all the criteria specified. We very much look forward to seeing how this prestigious series develops throughout 2009."
