Global Racing Confirm 7th Season in Fun Cup


Posted on In Coverage

Global Racing has confirmed entry to what will be their 7th consecutive season in the Fun Cup this year. Their line up will feature a number of drivers again, with John Gilbert & Sarah Reader being joined by Scott Mansell & team manager, Steve Machin, for some of the rounds as well as providing some new drivers an opportunity later in the season.

Team Manager, Steve Machin, said: ” “We are pleased to be back on the grid for 2016 and delighted to continue our partnership with Phill & the team at Trackcars4hire. Thanks to their hard work, we made some great progress with the car last year & it’s clearly capable of keeping up with the front-runners. We were just unfortunate that this coincided with what was probably our unluckiest season in the Championship so far. We are looking forward to a successful campaign this year & can’t wait for the first round at Brands Hatch.”

Fun Cup Championship Director, Paul Rose, said: “ It is great to see Global Racing join us for their 7th consecutive season. The addition of Scott Mansell will really make the team super competitive”.

The 2016 Fun Cup championship will consist of 7 UK races at 6 venues, plus the world famous Spa 25 hour non-championship round. The total amount of UK race time for 2016, is an unrivalled 28 hours. On top of this, exclusive testing & qualifying are included in the timetable. So, with super competitive, full grids & staggering amounts of track time for the cost, plus the friendliest paddock, Fun Cup always proves extremely popular.

Each event is also filmed for Sky Sports’ Racemax programme & Motors TV, with several repeats.
