Radical News 1 - Full Grids For Radical World Cup
The Radical World Cup ‘kicks off’ at the end of August,
with a full grid of cars set to support the Le Mans Series event
at Donington Park (August 26-27). Over 30 entries are already confirmed
and several more teams are expected to enter.
SR8 teams are entered, headed by the leading Radical Enduro team,
Team Quaife, while Touring Car ace David Leslie will be partnering
SR8 owner/driver Steve Jones. Four teams from Germany, headed by
Radical Germany’s Christian Droop will be attending, as will
four teams from Radical Portugal.
has enlisted the help of Le Mans driver and Radical test pilot,
Michael Vergers in the SR4 class, while Jacob's father, Tim, will
be driving both his SR8 with co-pilot Stuart Moseley in the Radical
World Cup and his AER-powered SR9 in the Le Mans Series.
The second round of the Radical World Cup will take
place at Spa Francorchamps on October 6-8, with the third and fourth
events at Estoril and Dubai.
Spa should see a grid of 60 cars lining up.
The third round of the Radical World Cup at Estoril,
in Portugal, has moved forward a week to November 4-5. Grids for
this round are expected to be forty plus with 20 teams from the
Radical Portuguese Cup joining forces with UK and German teams.
The last round of the Radical World Cup has also
moved, to December 14-15. The date change will enable teams to ship
cars to Dubai by sea ensuring costs are kept to a minimum. As with
the other rounds a healthy grid is expected with a contingent of
drivers from the Gulf Radical Cup being joined by the European drivers.
“We have hit a chord with the Radical World
Cup concept,” says Mick Hyde. “A lot of our customers
like racing at prestigious events at top circuits. We are looking
forward to extending our participation in the Le Mans Series rounds
in 2007. We are expecting four Radical SR9s on the Le Mans Series
grid next year and many of the drivers, including our Tim Greaves
and Stuart Moseley, made a name for themselves in Radicals, so it
is a natural step for us.”
All Radicals are eligible to run in the World Cup,
in one of five classes:
· SR8 - to Dunlop Radical Enduro regulations
· SR3- to Dunlop Radical Enduro regulations
· SR4 - to Dunlop Radical Biduro regulations
· Prosport / Clubsport - Matador Powertec Radical Cup regulations
· Invitation - for Radical cars not complying to the above.
