First conceived in Europe in 1997, the Fun Cup Championship provides some of the best value endurance racing you’ll find on the continent with identical cars and up to 50 hours worth of driving time in an entire season.
All cars are equal, comprising of a tubular steel space frame chassis, identical silhouette style bodywork, a lightly tuned 1.8-litre VW/Audi, disc brakes all round and a 5-speed sequential gearbox, all designed to ensure any driver can jump in and get up to speed quickly.
Race lengths range from 3 to 5 hours, with two doubleheader weekends including a trip to Mondello Park in Ireland midway through the season. All races feature mandatory pitstops for refuelling to add to the strategy element of long-distance racing.
Teams can comprise of anything between 2 and 6 drivers, making it easy to spread the costs of entry fees and allowing drivers to maximise the value of their track time in a number of ways, with a grid full of a diverse mixture of young and experienced drivers battling on track together at any one time.
Other attractive incentives include a £10,000 prize to any new team of drivers that wins their first Fun Cup race, the chance to race at the incredible Spa 25 Hours race and professionally produced TV coverage.
