Radicals ready for Island test

The Radical Australia Cup will have eight entries for it’s fourth round at the Shannons Nationals in Phillip Island with Kim Burke headlining the strong field.

Burke has finished on the podium in all three rounds so far and will be using Phillip Island as an opportunity to extend his already comfortable lead of 60 points over second placed Chris Perini.

Radical rookie Perini’s previous experience at the iconic Grand Prix circuit on two wheels should give him confidence to get maximum points or at least challenge Burke.

Brad Neilson and brother Mitch in the #38 Radical will be looking to replicate their form from round two at The Bend Motorsport Park when they won the round outright.

A host of names are returning to the Cup after missing Sandown with Sue Hughes, Jon Collins Peter Clare, Yasser Shahin and James Winslow all scheduled to take part in the round.

Nathan Kumar will be making his series debut for Taylor Collison / RA Motorsports while RA Motorsports teammate Rowan Ross rounds out the eight car field.

The Radical Australia Cup will open up proceedings on Friday with the first of two practice sessions, before qualifying on Saturday morning sets up their two 50-minute races with one on Saturday afternoon and the other on Sunday.

The Shannons Nationals at Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit will take place on 1 -3 June, with live coverage of Sunday’s session available on motorsportaustraliachampionships.com.au.

Tickets are available for purchase at the gate.
