Up for sale is car 246, if you don’t know about Fun Cup, the racing number of the car is dictated by the build number of the car, it stays with it for life. This is a fairly late build car, which has done very little racing. When I purchased the car in late 2018, the car had done one season of racing in Fun Cup UK only, then parked up for several years. During that time the rules and regulations had moved on the car was out of spec for current regulations.
In 2018 / 2019 the car was updated to current championship spec including fitting a new sequential Sadev gearbox, new paddle clutch, new driveshafts and gear selector with display. In addition, the engine was removed and refreshed by JPR Motorsport, the Fun Cup championship organisers. In 2018 and 2019 approximately 5 test days were carried out whilst we learnt how to set up the car and get the best out of the tyres. Once we were finally ready, we committed to the final two rounds of the 2019 season, Silverstone National and Oulton Park International. Silverstone resulted in a 7th place finish out of a grid of 26 car grid. A solid effort for our first ever event, especially as we were on a terrible strategy. We led much of the opening stint of the race, and came away with team of the day. At our second event, we were front runners for the whole event, until hour three when we lost a radiator hose and overheated the engine. Since then the engine has gone back to JPR for complete overhaul and has done zero miles since.
