The BRSCC SuperSport Endurance Cup is the latest home-grown long-distance production car racing creation by the club.
After a successful first pilot race which took place at Snetterton in 2021, the BRSCC SuperSport Endurance Cup will continue its development further through the 2022 season with a pair of races taking place at Brands Hatch on the Indy circuit – one in June, and one in August.
Race durations are both 100 minutes, with each enjoying a 45 minute qualifying session. Entries can consist of between 1 and 3 drivers per car, and all cars are required to complete two mandatory timed driver change / refueling pit stops.
Cars are separated into five classes based on their (flywheel) power to weight ratio. These can range from small to mid-sized sports cars such as the Lotus Elise/Exige and Porsche Cayman typically found in Class A, all the way through BMW 3 Series and Honda Civics and on to smaller clubman level race cars such as Renault Clios, Ford Fiestas and Mazda MX-5s. The maximum power to weight ratio allowed is 310bhp per tonne, and all cars competing must do so on List 1A, 1B or 1C tyres.
The plan is for the two races at Brands Hatch in 2022 to serve as a further proving ground to ensure the regulations can be tweaked and refined to ensure they provide the best quality clubman endurance racing product possible. The aim will be for the SuperSport Endurance Cup to run its own full-length series of races from 2023 onwards, where it will be set to visit equally popular circuits such as Silverstone, Donington Park and Oulton Park to name a few examples.
Interest in the new SuperSport Endurance Cup is high for the 2022 season and we’re certain that this new series will inspire many club racers to join in and help shape its future heading into 2023 and beyond. Come and join us!
