The MSA Control Panel has granted outline championship status to the Fun Cup for 2011, with the BRSCC as the organising club holding the permit.

The Fun Cup was launched in Europe 13 years ago and first came to the UK in 2002. Since its inception it has proved to be a very successful form of endurance racing and has introduced many new drivers into motorsport.

Paul Rose, Series Director, said: “We are delighted to announce that we will be running as a championship in 2011. Fun Cup is the strongest it has ever been, with big grids at every race and strong competition guaranteed at each round. Changing to a championship will hopefully result in even more cars committing to a full season, therefore giving us even bigger grids than we have already. It will, of course, also allow us to celebrate the overall winners at the end of the season. We would also like to take this opportunity to welcome the new teams that will be taking part in the Fun Cup Championship next year.”

BRSCC Competitions Director Drew Furlong added “The BRSCC has a long association with Fun Cup so we are delighted to welcome the series into our championship portfolio. We ran the recent Finals event at Donington Park which attracted an entry of 66 cars and some 200 plus drivers so the concept clearly has the numbers to justify championship status”.
