The Civic Cup Championship is excited to announce that we are joining the British Racing & Sports Car Club for the 2018 season and beyond. We are especially proud to be supporting two rounds of the TCR UK Championship in its inaugural season.
About to enter our 8th full season, we are confident the BRSCC will provide the perfect opportunity to continue to grow the championship. 2017 was the best season to date and provided some incredibly close and entertaining racing. Followers have been gripped over the 7 rounds, with the championship being decided at the final round of the year. There were 8 different race winners and the number of different podium winners showed just how close the racing was.
Shaun Woods, Director of Civic Cup, said “Having approached the BRSCC, I’m very pleased with what they have offered us for 2018 and the opportunity to race on the TCR package at two meetings was certainly one not to be missed. The BRSCC paddock will be the perfect platform to showcase what the Civic Cup is all about.” The opening event at Silverstone will be one to remember .
“I’d like to thank all the drivers past and present for their continued support, I’m sure they will be as excited as me at this news. The drivers have raised the bar in car preparation and the driving standards were second to none this year.
I hope this move will help to raise the profile of our talented drivers, our 2016 Civic Cup Champion, Carl Swift, is entering the TCR UKchampionship himself as a privateer in 2018. ”
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the 750 Motor Club for its support over the last 4 seasons, it’s been a great home and the support for the Championship couldn’t have been better”.
New BRSCC Chairman Peter Daly added “The Civic Cup is a welcome addition to the BRSCC stable. It has enormous potential for further development and we look forward to working with Shaun and the team to deliver that”.
The full calendar will be released in the next few weeks once all dates have been finalized.
