Donington Park Radical News
Devlin For Bruichladdich SR9 – McRae For SR8

Ben Devlin will be getting some valuable Radical SR9 seat time at the forthcoming 1000kms at Donington Park - in the Team Bruichladdich car, alongside regular pilots Tim Greaves and Stuart Moseley.

With the Englishman due to anchor the driving squad of the third SR9 chassis, currently being prepared for delivery to the Van de Steur Racing squad in time for Petit Le Mans, the Donington Park outing in the #21 car will give the American team an excellent opportunity to gain some valuable experience of the capabilities of the AER-engined chassis.

There will meanwhile be rather more than the two regular Le Mans Series Radical chassis on track at Donington Park as the new Radical World cup debuts as part of the support package for the 1000km race.

The four-round series is open to all Radical models, and will be run in four classes. The format will be 50 minute double-headers for one- and two-driver teams.

One of the top class SR8s will be piloted at Donington Park by new Radical road car customer Colin McRae, the ex-World Rally Champion making his first appearance in a sportscar race since a one off outing for Prodrive, in a Ferrari 550 at the 2004 Le Mans 24 Hours.

After Donington Park, supporting the Le Mans Series, the Radical World Series visits Spa-Francorchamps in October, with the ‘Great & British’ Dunlop package, before moving to Estoril in November for the last round of the Radical Challenge Portugal, and ends in December at Dubai in support of the A1 GP.
