Following a busy couple of days at the recent Motorsport Days Live event at Silverstone, Civic Cup championship organisers are anticipating full-to-capacity grids next year, such was the interest in the increasingly popular one-make series for 2-litre K-Series engined versions of Honda’s most popular model.
With the format of the show allowing competitors to test the machines they’re interested in campaigning the following season, Civic Cup promotors Maximum Motorsport made three cars available for drivers to put through their paces around the International configuration of the British Grand Prix venue.
Following the success of the championship in 2021 – a season that brought with it increased competitor numbers, more spectators and greater public engagement – the interest shown by drivers and teams last weekend means that if enquiries turn into entries, the size of the grids will be dictated by track limits rather than the number of registrations.
“2021 was a highly successful year for the Civic Cup, explains Championship Manager Stewart Lines. “By adding a Production Class for cars with fewer modifications and consequently lower running costs, coupled with our new association with Club Time Attack, has enabled us to offer drivers and teams an extremely attractive package across a range of budgets.”
“Consequently, the interest we’ve received from returning competitors and those that are intending to join us for the first time means that entries are likely to be oversubscribed. We, therefore, recommend early registration to avoid missing out on an even more exciting season in 2022.”
