MSVR heads to Silverstone for the club's traditional summer National Circuit weekend, with a heady mix of sports car, tin-top and single seater racing in store.
The action kicks-off on Saturday with the fantastic Radical SR1 Cup. Aimed at novice drivers looking for a complete package, the championship is the perfect start to a sports car career with these rapid, Le Mans-style racers.
The exciting MINI CHALLENGE championship also features on Saturday, with the Cooper Pro/Am and Cooper S classes out in force. These evenly matched cars always produce close racing with drivers looking to prove themselves as they begin to ascend the tin-top racing ladder.
MSVR’s sister department MSV Trackdays (MSVT) has expanded its racing operations for 2018, now running three grids. The ever popular Trackday Trophy hits the tarmac on Sunday, after the newly split Trackday Championship on Saturday. The first Championship grid caters for the traditional B, C and D classes, with the faster S and A classes moving to their own races. The likes of SEAT Leon SuperCopas and BMW M3s will provide some very quick lap times on the National circuit!
Single seater racing this weekend comes courtesy of the F3 Cup Championship, the UK’s only championship exclusively for close-to-contemporary (pre-2017) Formula 3 cars. Silverstone has a rich history of close F3 racing, with the fast corners allowing the drivers to fully exploit the complex aero of these stunning machines.
The new-for-2018 Heritage Formula Ford series provides a different single seater challenge on Sunday, with less power and no aerodynamic aids; the onus is on the drivers to perfect their lines and slip-streaming techniques to reach the podium.
Also featuring on Sunday is the MSVR All-Comers series, which provides the opportunity for any closed wheel car to compete in a fun, low pressure environment. Offering great value for money, drivers often use it as a chance to shake down their cars without the risk of losing valuable championship points, or to earn those all important licence upgrade signatures – expect to see a wide variety of cars in action!
