The Radical Challenge Championship is a new-for-2016 Radical racing concept, offering a more diverse racing weekend than ever before at an even more competitive price.
Incorporating three additional challenge trophies – the SR1 Challenge, Solo Challenge and Team Challenge – the Radical Challenge Championship is open to Radical's SR3 and SR1 models with a thrilling mix of sprint and endurance races at the UK's leading circuits.
The overall 2016 Radical Challenge Champion will receive a brand-new like-for-like replacement for their title-winning SR3 or SR1, built to the latest specification.
All UK race events take place over a single day of racing, allowing drivers to race AND time to spend with the family on the same weekend. Each race day features a split qualifying session, two fast-paced 20-minute standing-start sprint races and a 40-minute endurance finale, incorporating a mandatory pit-stop for all classes.
The 2016 Radical Challenge Championship visits premier UK circuits including Silverstone Grand Prix, Brands Grand Prix and Donington Park. Teams can contest one of the following challenges within the main championship, with the highest overall scoring driver/team also scooping the 2016 Radical Challenge Championship title. The challenges are:
> SR1 CHALLENGE
Aimed at graduates of Radical's SR1 Cup rookie-to-racer championship, this is the perfect next step in your sportscar racing career. Open to standard 1340cc SR1 Cup specification cars with the Challenge upgrade package of dry-sump lubrication system and slick tyres.
> SOLO CHALLENGE
Open to single drivers in the SR3 RSX, SR3 RS and SR3, this is a fast and furious category that's sure to be hotly contested.
> TEAM CHALLENGE
The Team Challenge allows for two drivers in one car and is open to both SR3 and SR1 teams, ideal for Pro/Am entries or dual-Am pairings.
