The F1 Rejects Masters (Wizzie) was a planned motor racing championship. Born from the ashes of the original series, the series was meant to stay true to the original concept, although with cost-cutting measures to avoid failure. However, after the initial announcement nothing was heard from the Australian investors behind the series, some attributing this to the fact that many high-profile drivers refused to race in the series. The concept would finally materialise in 2016, after FSK successfully organized their own version of the event.

Concept

The series aimed to gather the best drivers of the Formula 1 Rejects racing system to compete in equal cars during the off-season in order to determine which driver is the best of the best.

In order to avoid bankruptcy, which ultimately halted the original incarnation of the series, cheaper cars had to be offered, and they were found in the form of old Citroën 2CVs, which would allow the best drivers of the moment to show their worth behind the wheel of reticent machinery.

Every champion was offered a tier A invitation, which they could either accept or refuse. Should they refuse, tier B invitations were sent to other drivers (mainly series runners-up), and so-on until a full grid of 22 drivers was obtained.

Race weekend

There was going to be four race weekends held across the winter break, each weekend containing two 50km races.
