For 2021, ACI, the Italian Sporting Federation who holds the FIA European Formula Regional sporting title, and ALPINE RACING are organising a series of Reserved International Events called Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine, with the agreement of the Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA).

Formula Regional by Alpine uses Pirelli tyres in one specification. Each driver has two sets of dry-weather tyres and two sets of wet-weather tyres available at each event.
No individual developments or upgrades are permitted in the series and all spare parts must be purchased directly from Alpine Racing. Repairs of structural components must be carried out by Tatuus in order to ensure integrity.
