Radical Caribbean SR3 Cup gets regional status

The Radical Caribbean SR3 Cup is to become a regional championship. Bushy Park Circuit Inc (BPCI), the regional distributor for Radical Sportscars, has confirmed a four-round series in Barbados, Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago in its first year, with plans for further expansion in future seasons. Running to the same rules that have applied to the SR3 Cup in Barbados since 2015, this is again a one-make series for the Suzuki-powered Radical SR3, so will not cater for the Radicals of different specifications now racing in the region in the hands of drivers such as Jamaica’s Kyle Gregg and David Summerbell Jnr.

The new regional series will kick off at the second round of the Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) at the Frankie Boodram Wallerfield International Raceway in Trinidad & Tobago (June 23/24), run by the T&T Automobile Sports Association (TTASA); rounds two and three will be hosted by Bushy Park Motor Sports Inc (BPMSI) in Barbados, with night-racing added to the challenge on July 7, before the CMRC round on September 1/2; the final round will be at the Guyana Motor Racing & Sports Club’s (GMR&SC) CMRC finale at South Dakota on November 10/11.

The organising clubs will offer the same package to competitors at each round: on the Thursday or Friday, four hours of track time for testing; on Qualifying Day, 10 minutes of Practice, with grid positions then decided on the fastest of five laps in Qualifying; on Race Day, three races, each running for a minimum of 15 minutes.

BPCI Facility & Workshop Manager Kurt Seabra, who is the Series Co-ordinator, said: “Drivers from all three countries have already competed in the Radical series and have cars available to race, so a regional series is a logical move. Our drivers in Guyana and Trinidad are on the same page as us with this idea, as are the organisers, and I believe we can expect between eight and 10 cars competing in the first round in Trinidad.”
