2021 RA Cup open to all forms of Radicals
Thursday 14 January, 2021
The Radical Australia Cup has changed its regulations ahead of the 2021 season.
The 2021 season of Radical Australia Cup will see a shift towards a new technical format with the competition opened up to all forms of Radical racing cars.
In a major boost for potential competitors, strict regulations which prohibited different powered radicals from racing alongside each other will be removed to provide more opportunities to race.
With more than 100 Radicals of various forms currently in Australia, the change of regulations will mean anyone with a Motorsport Australia approved Radical will be eligible to compete in the five-round 2021 Radical Australia Cup.
Radical Australia category rights holder Chris Medland was pleased with the outcome after a conducting a review process in 2020 with regard to how the competition was run.
“Part of our planning for 2021 was to focus on our market and our drivers, which will see a shift away from the prohibitive regulations under which we’ve raced in recent years, having terminated the agreement with Radical UK,” Medland said.
“This now finally allows us the freedom to go racing without the limitations set by suppliers, providing our customers with exactly what they had been asking for and open the category up to the bulk of the Radical competitors in the country.”
All entries in the 2021 RA Cup will be competing in their respective classes and for outright honours.
Three of the five rounds for 2021 have been already been confirmed, with Bathurst to open the season in April before the series heads off to Sydney Motorsport Park and The Bend Motorsport Park as part of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships.
