Radical Cup regains Supercars support status

RADICAL Cup Australia will next year return to playing a support role at a Repco Supercars Championship event.

A five-round 2024 calendar has been unveiled for Radical Cup, starting at the Phillip Island Shannons SpeedSeries round in April and finishing at the Bathurst International seven months later.

In between there will be visits to Wanneroo Raceway, The Bend Motorsport Park and Sydney Motorsport Park.

The Radical field will be on the Supercars undercard at Wanneroo for the Perth SuperSprint on May 17-19.

That’s a repeat of 2022, before Radicals dropped off the Perth SuperSprint bill this year.

Round 3 at The Bend will be in support of the Super Trofeo Asia round there on June 7-9, while SMP is another SpeedSeries stop.

Compared to the 2023 schedule, it’s effectively Queensland Raceway and a second SMP round out, and Wanneroo and Mount Panorama in.

“In many ways, the 2023 calendar was a compromise however 2024 is what we see as the best version of a Radical Cup Australia calendar,” said category manager Charise Bristow.

“It’s a great mixture of events and dates that give time for our teams and drivers between rounds, but still deliver great value for everyone involved.

“We were so well supported by our teams and competitors this year we wanted to make sure that their commitment and support was rewarded with the best possible calendar for next year and this delivers that and much more.

“We’re pleased to be heading back to the west so Arise Racing can have a home round once again, and to give the series a presence on the Supercars calendar.

“Drivers love The Bend, so it’s great to be there with the Lamborghini series, while the Shannons SpeedSeries continues to grow, and they have a lot of exciting things planned for 2024.

“Finishing at Bathurst is set to be a highlight and will be an incredible way to end the season.”

Young gun Alex Gardner won this year’s title.
