Radical program for 2018

Next season will mark a decade of the Radical Australia Cup, with the category preparing for their biggest season yet in 2018.

The series has announced an extended calendar for the year along with their new ambassador, Formula 1 World Champion, Alan Jones.

“The Radical Australia Cup has been a great success over the last nine years, but we need to step things up as we head into our 10th season,” Radical Australia’s Chris Medland said.

“Alan Jones is part of the bigger picture, but so too establishing an unrivalled prize pool that will attract more attention from competitors looking to establish a future in the sport.”

The prize will be announced soon, as will their plans for a reality-style TV program.

The program is said to be based around a ‘Pro-Am’ style race, which would see amateur drivers competing for three rounds, with a professional to assist them in the final 50-minute race.

“It’s an exciting program… keep an eye on the media over the coming weeks as we reveal a number of new additions to the 2018 Radical program, which promises to be the best on record,” Medland added.

The series will kick off at Bathurst in February, before heading to the first Shannons Nationals round at The Bend in April.
