Radical’s SR1 Cup Championship

1 March 2017

Radical Sportscars has announced three value-for-money packages for its SR1 Cup Championship, which offers novice drivers looking to take their circuit driving to the next level the opportunity to enter Radical’s professionally administered race series.

 

The Radical SR1 Cup, now in its fifth season, is one of the UK’s fastest entry-level, novice racing championships. It offers closed circuit racing for amateurs, with racers not allowed any more than 3 years experience. It is an eight race, four round series which visits some of the UK’s premier circuits including Brands Hatch GP and Snetterton 300 from May through to the end of August. The racing is only open to Radical SR1 models and entry into the cup comes as part of the package of buying or loaning an SR1.

 

With the looks of a Le Mans prototype, the SR1 sportscar marks the first step on the Radical Racing ladder. At entry level the car offers unparalleled performance for money. The SR1 is designed to a minimum race weight of 490kg and drives its rear wheels with a 175 bhp Suzuki Hayabusa engine. It runs on treaded Dunlop racing tyres rather than slicks for both cost control and to enable novice and low experience level drivers to feel the car moving in a safe and predictable manner and progress their car control and driving skills.

 

Together with either a Generation 2 (2017) or Generation 1 (approved used) SR1 model that is fully race prepared, the first two packages include a race licence, race suit, testing and comprehensive tuition, expert technical advice and spares truck at each event and entry into each of the four race weekends of the SR1 Cup Championship. For the SR1 Generation 2 package prices start at £40,000 + VAT, for the Generation 1 package from £27,500 + VAT.

 

The third package is aimed at those that would like to try the experience before buying a Radical SR1 sportscar. This package includes the loan of a fully race prepared Generation 1 SR1 for between 2 and 4 fully supported race weekends. The package also includes assistance with the race licence procedure if required, storage transport, race preparation and maintenance of the car. Package 3 is priced at £4,850 + VAT + insurance per weekend, with a minimum of two weekends and a maximum of 4 weekends to be taken up within a racing season.

 

Alex Mortimer, himself a British GT Champion and Le Mans competitor and Director of Motorsport and Engineering at Radical, commented, ‘Our SR1 packages have been designed to make motor racing more accessible to those novice and entry level drivers that have aspirations of becoming a racing driver.

 

‘In terms of value for money it is as cost-effective as organised sports prototype racing can be. It means those that have dreamt of being a racing driver can be sat behind their desk, conducting business Monday to Friday but by the weekend they’re sat on the grid, in their racing suit, behind the wheel of a high performance sportscar and have the thrill and exhilaration of competing with a full field of drivers all aiming to compete but most importantly have fun. This is the Radical experience. Nothing Compares.’
