Formula 5000 (of F5000) was an open-wheel, single-seater auto racing formula that ran in different series in various regions around the world from 1968 to 1982. It was originally intended as a low-cost series aimed at open-wheel race cars that no longer fit into any particular formula. The “5000” denomination comes from the maximum 5.0L engine capacity allowed in the cars, although many cars ran with smaller engines. This is an original advertisement from that event.
