Toronto, February 25, 2014 – Radical Canada announced today the details of the 2014 Radical Canada Cup (RCC). Run in conjunction with the Canadian Automobile Sports Club (CASC) and open to all Radical Sportscars with 4- cylinder engines, the RCC builds on the successful history of one make championships in Canada and Radical series around the world.
“The Radical Canada Cup’s first season was very successful and the championship is set to experience strong growth in 2014,” says Radical Canada executive Robert Burgess.
Starting May 3 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, the Championship will run with the Formula Libre group at all six 2014 CASC events (see below for complete schedule).
Each race weekend will consist of practice, qualifying sessions and three 20-minute races, as well a test day held the Friday before each event. Participants will have the option of running just one day or having two drivers attend an event. One of the season’s highlights will be the Can-Am Challenge race on July 26 and 27 at CTMP, where Radical Cup USA will race alongside the Radical Canada Cup.
“There are now over 30 Radical owners in Canada, so we’re offering them a fun and competitive forum in which to enjoy their cars,” says Burgess. “I’m sure the series will continue to grow quickly as more drivers get a sense of just how awesome the cars are.”
Dunlop is the official spec tire supplier and will be supporting the series with prizes and giveaways at each round. “Dunlop has worked closely with Radical to develop bespoke racing tires that offer excellent performance, consistency and longevity,” says Phil Lamont of Dunlop Motorsports North America.
Castrol is supporting the series as the official lubricant supplier and will be providing drivers with their popular Power RS 4T Synthetic racing motor oil and Syntec gear oil.
Championship points will be awarded based on the CASC point system, with 30 going to the winner and points being paid down to the 15th place finisher. Contingency prizes will also be awarded at each event and the season champion will get an entry to the Radical World Finals in Nevada to compete against Radical champions from around the world.
All participating cars must conform to the CASC General Competition Rules (GCR) and have a valid 2014 tech inspection. Each driver must also have a valid CASC or equivalent racing license.
