The Formula 2 Rejects World Race Series is a feeder series to the F1RWRS with the first series being the 2014 season. The creation of the series was done mostly by MRT owner Daniel Melrose and his business partner Don Rennis to help promote young talent into the F1RWRS.

History

The beginning

With the influx of drivers into the F1RWRS from all around the world, there were fears from several prominent members of the paddock that there wouldn't be enough opportunities for drivers to make their name in the F1RWRS. Daniel Melrose in particular was worried about this growing problem, especially when he was one of the few team owners who actively pushed younger talent through with the likes of Jeroen Krautmeir, Phillippe Nicolas, Mitchell Macklin and Michael Robertson all around the world over the years as a team owner. He took it upon himself to help the F1RWRS commission to form a feeder category for the F1RWRS which will be run by former McLaren team boss Don Rennis.

22 cars from 11 teams lined up on the grid for the first ever race at the 2013 F2RWRS Indianapolis 100 which was eventually won by Belgian Wouter Lamberigts after a strategic battle between him, the two KitKat cars of Hansuke Shioya and Giconi Okorie, Macklin and Rosco Vantini
