Radical's Racing Ladder



The championship begins with an ARDS test at any MotorSport Vision circuit, including a medical (for those already holding a race licence the cost of the 2017 renewal will be covered), before drivers take their cars to the first of two exclusive Radical trackdays, one at Brands Hatch in Kent, the other at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire – both circuits that these novice racers will compete at later in the season. There will be instructors on hand to guide the drivers, timing will be possible and there will even be the opportunity for them to try practice starts with the full countdown procedure and start lights. 

Experienced Radical staff and technicians are on-hand to explain everything that happens during a race weekend, from signing-on to taking the chequered flag, along with circuit driving theory, circuit driving techniques and how to prepare yourself for what lies ahead. Radical also details everything you need to know about preparing the car. The SR1 has been designed to be both easy and inexpensive to maintain and Radical’s works team engineers will explain just how to do it. 

Each race event is fully staffed by the Radical factory so there will be support, expert advice and a spares truck at each event, and the qualifying session and two races will take place on the same day to keep travel expenses to a minimum. The races will be held at Brands Hatch Indy, Oulton Park, Cadwell Park and Snetterton, some of the finest circuits in the country. By October the fourth Radical SR1 Cup champion will be crowned and along with the trophy they will win a Works drive in the opening round of the 2018 Radical Challenge Championship in an SR3 RSX - on their way up the Radical racing ladder.



The next stage on the Radical racing ladder is the Radical Challenge Championship, the UK’s fastest one-make series. The Radical Challenge Championship, introduced in 2016, is a Radical racing concept, offering a more diverse racing weekend than ever before at an even more competitive price. 

Incorporating three additional challenge trophies – the SR1 Challenge, Solo Challenge and Team Challenge – the Radical Challenge Championship is open to Radical’s SR3 and SR1 models with a thrilling mix of sprint and endurance races at the UK’s leading circuits.

The overall 2017 Radical Challenge Champion will receive a brand-new like-for-like replacement for their title-winning SR3 or SR1, built to the latest specification.

All UK race events take place over a single day of racing, allowing drivers to race AND time to spend with the family on the same weekend. Each race day features a split qualifying session, two fast-paced 20-minute standing-start sprint races and a 40-minute endurance finale, incorporating a mandatory pit-stop for all classes.

The 2017 Radical Challenge Championship visits premier UK circuits including Silverstone Grand Prix, Brands Grand Prix and Donington Park. Teams can contest one of the following challenges within the main championship, with the highest overall scoring driver/team also scooping the 2017 Radical Challenge Championship title. The challenges are:

Aimed at graduates of Radical’s SR1 Cup rookie-to-racer championship, this is the perfect next step in your sportscar racing career. Open to standard 1340cc SR1 Cup specification cars with the Challenge upgrade package of dry-sump lubrication system and slick tyres.

Open to single drivers in the SR3 RSX, SR3 RS and SR3, this is a fast and furious category that’s sure to be hotly contested.

The Team Challenge allows for two drivers in one car and is open to both SR3 and SR1 teams, ideal for Pro/Am entries or dual-Am pairings. Thanks to the popular Success Seconds system employed by Radical throughout its endurance championships, close racing across the classes can be guaranteed!



The Radical European Masters is Radical's premier international championship, offering the closest experience and performance to LMP racing but for a fraction of the price, and the 2017 season offers an unrivalled package of current GP venues and thrilling, modern circuits in a calendar that runs from April to November. 

The RXC Spyder – the largest and most advanced open racer that Radical has ever produced – headlines the Masters Class for the ultimate sportscar racing experience, whilst the recently-revealed SR3 RSX raises the performance envelope even higher in the Supersports Class. All European Masters events in 2016 will feature three races, up to a longer duration of 60 minutes each for unbeatable track time, alongside an increased minimum of two 60-minute practice sessions and a 25-minute qualifying session. 

The FIA-recognised championship runs within the heavily promoted GT Sport package, ensuring high levels of service and organisation and racing in front of large crowds. The 2016 season will culminate in a stellar finale at Circuit de Jerez in Spain with a spectacular end-of-season Awards Dinner in the city of Jerez de la Frontera, in conjunction with GT Open.

The Radical European Masters features TV coverage at selected rounds and high-quality complimentary hospitality for all competitors. Drivers can elect to drive solo or with a partner, with a mandatory pitstop in the middle of the race for a driver change. A success equalisation system by variable pit stop length ensures even closer racing amongst the Masters Class (for SR8s and the RXC Spyder) and Supersports Class (for the SR3 RS and SR3 RSX) teams. Single drivers over 50 years of age (or driver pairings with a combined age of 100 years or more) are also eligible for the Fangio Trophy.

Le Mans & International Competition

Competitors in the Radical Challenge Championship and Radical European Masters have the chance to win a drive in a Daytona Prototype in the Rolex 24, indicative of the speed and quality of the drivers graduating from the Radical European Masters. The new Radical RXC GT3 coupe offers Radical owners the perfect model to compete in international multi-marque championships including 6, 12 and 24-hour events.
