EPIC Racing (Euskadi Phil Imanol Claudio Racing) was a racing team from Spain. The team's headquarters were located in Vitoria (Alava). It was the second major motorsport team from the Basque Country, (Euskadi). Epsilon Euskadi was the biggest one and ran their own team in World Series by Renault and Formula Renault before selling the racing division to EPIC Racing in March 2011 in a bid to run the World Series by Renault with both FR3.5 and FR2.0 when Epsilon Euskadi ran into financial trouble and allowed all personnel involved to maintain their jobs.

Epic Racing was born from a sell out of Epsilon Euskadi and not a name change as it mistakenly written in several places. Nevertheless, Epsilon Euskadi continued non-racing activities until 2013 when administrators took the lead of the operations.
Bid for Formula OneEdit
This page is mistakenly written for EPIC Racing. It is only related to Epsilon Euskadi.
Although the team announced on June 3, 2009 that it had submitted an entry for the Formula 1 World Championship for 2010, the FIA did not list them amongst the 13 teams in the preliminary entry list released on June 12, 2009. They were however placed on the reserve list in case one of the 13 teams withdrew, but the withdrawal of USF1 took place too late for this contingency to operate.
In March 2010 Epsilon Euskadi announced it applied to enter the 2011 Formula One championship, following the failure of US F1 to use the entry they had been granted. This application was also unsuccessful.
This page is related to Epsilon Euskadi only and not EPIC Racing as the Government funds were given to former Team.
In 2013 Epsilon Euskadi ee1 founder Joan Villadelprat and Mark Phillip Payne have been taken to court in Vitoria (Spain) under allegations of corruption and negligent management of public funding granted by the Basque Country government when Juan Jose Ibarratxe was president.
The results of EPIC Racing are only the ones during 2011 season. Previous seasons are Epsilon Euskadi results only

Again this chapter is only Epsilon Euskadi. EPIC Racing also purchased the LMP section of Epsilon Euskadi but never competed or ran the cars again.
