Aimed at the serious gentleman driver as well as up-and-coming talent looking to prove themselves on the world stage, the 2013 Radical Cup USA is open to all Radical SR3s and SR8/Coupes.
Backed by two of the most exclusive circuits in the country– Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch near Las Vegas and the Monticello Motor Club of New York– the series prepares drivers for the multi-class racing of Le Mans and the Rolex 24 of Daytona.
Both SR3 and SR8/Coupe race simultaneously in separate classes. However, unique to the Radical Cup, the overall champion is derived from the competitor with the highest point score from either class, placing equal emphasis on both SR3 and SR8/Coupe drivers.
The overall 2013 Radical Cup USA champion will receive an LMP2 test with a top European Le Mans team, while each of the 2013 SR8/Coupe and SR3 class champions win a one race SR8 RX drive in the FIA sanctioned Radical Masters Euroseries.
Class winners from each round will also receive a set of Dunlop tires.
The 12 round championship will take place at top racing circuits in North America, and Radical West– the world’s largest distributor outside of the manufacturer – and Powertec will provide optional track-side support at each round to ensure every competitor gets the most out their racing.
All racing weekends are 3 days comprised of a Friday testing day, Saturday practice, qualifying and race, and Sunday practice, qualifying, and a 2nd race.
Each round of the championship will be broadcast on the internet, while the final race of the 2013 Radical Cup USA will be televised.
All competitors will need to have a legal car to participate in the race series consisting of Radical supplied parts, Dunlop tires, and a sealed Powertec engine.
Drivers must have prior racing experience and hold a current racing license with SCCA, NASA, IMSA, FIA or Grand-Am (The Chief Steward may also approve drivers with club racing experience in a Radical).
