Teams’ championship introduced to Super2

THERE will be a new trophy up for grabs in the Dunlop Series this year, with the implementation of a teams’ championship.

In 23 years to date, there has only ever been a drivers’ championship awarded in Super2. A rookie of the year mantle was added in 2021, with Matt McLean and Matt Payne the two winners to date.

But the teams’ championship adds a new element to the battle for supremacy in the feeder series.

Described as an overall Dunlop Series Teams’ Championship, as opposed to separate Super2 and Super3 crowns like there is on the drivers’ side, points will be tallied based on every squad’s highest scoring entry for a round.

“The Car from each Team with the most points from a Round will be used to form the total Team points of the Dunlop Series Teams Championship,” reads an excerpt from the 2023 operations manual.

That system allows teams of all sizes to vie for the title, whether it’s four-car Eggleston Motorsport or the various one-car outfits on the grid.

MW Motorsport is considered the most successful team in Super2 history courtesy of its unparalleled four drivers’ championships.

MWM is set to run just one car in 2023, with Matt McLean rumoured to be the favourite to land that drive in an ex-Tickford Racing Mustang.
