Now - you can have a 1000KG bohemouth with a 4L 1500hp N/A V8 racing along side a 500KG lightweight car with a 1.5L turbo 6cyl putting out 750hp.
You're now describing the old Group X nomenclature from the 70's but with open wheel cars. Weights, displacements, loopholes and general insanity. It was great racing but I don't think they'll ever turn the clock back in that fashion.
Those were the crazy days of international racing.

I like my pseudo formula because it leaves the tweaking to the team, limits costs, limits complexity on the drivetrain side, and would be reasonably safe.

I almost forgot...bring back the Tire Wars!!!
