2018 Radical North American Schedule

2018 Radical North American championship to commence at COTA.


FIRST THREE DATES OF PLANNED SIX ROUND SERIES ANNOUNCED.

The 2018 season of Radical Sportscars’ North American series will pick up as it left off, joining Pirelli World Challenge at Circuit of the Americas, March 23-25.

The series will then join PWC at Virginia International Raceway, April 27-29, and again at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, May 18-20.

“To be at COTA with thirty cars and the atmosphere of Pirelli World Challenge was a perfect way to send off 2017, and we’re equally delighted to commence our 2018 North American series in the same fashion,” commented Radical Regional Manager Tom Drewer.

“Even more exciting is that we’ll be joining PWC for the first three rounds of our six round North American championship. Being billed on these high-profile events is a huge coup for Radical, and we can’t wait for our drivers to showcase themselves in front of large spectator crowds– we know they’ll put on a great show.”

The Canadian Tire Motorsport Park date will also act as the first round of the Radical Canada Cup.

As in 2017 each round will consist of three 40-minute sprint races and the series is open to Radical SR3, SR8, SPYDER and RXC cars.

The complete 2018 schedule, including two West Coast rounds, will be announced during the PRI Trade Show, Indianapolis, Dec 7-9. Radical will be at PRI with the first full presence for over a decade, showcasing its powertrain capability alongside information on its range of cars and championship.

Re: 2018 Radical North American Schedule

Radical Sportscars will partner Pirelli World Challenge in 2018, with all six rounds of Radical’s North American championship supporting PWC events.

The announcement was made during the Pirelli World Challenge Competitor meeting at the Performance Racing Industry trade show in Indianapolis.

Two more venues were also confirmed. Utah Motorsports Campus (Aug 10-12) and Watkins Glen International (Aug 31-Sep 2) have been added to Circuit of the Americas (March 23-25), Virginia International Raceway (April 27-29) and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (May 18-20).

Pirelli World Challenge President and CEO Greg Gill and Radical Sportscars North American Regional Manager Tom Drewer following the announcement at PRI Show.

The partnership with PWC means the Radical series will now be sanctioned by USAC, giving North American Radical drivers access to FIA licensing and the opportunity to compete internationally, via Radical’s one-make championships in Australia, Europe, the Middle-East and the United Kingdom.

The popularity of Radical’s North American series has warranted an expansion from five to six rounds in 2018. This season’s championship attracted 45 competitors from across the United States as well as drivers from Canada, Brazil, England and Norway.

Jesse Menczer (One Motorsport) won the Masters (SR8) class championship. Richard Thomas (Wisko Racing) won his second consecutive 1500 title after a year-long battle with Ethan Stone (One Motorsport). Antoine Comeau won the 1340 class championship, despite a broken wrist preventing his participation in the final round.

The series is open to all Radical SR3 1340, SR3 1500, SR8, RXC and SPYDER models. Interested drivers and teams should contact their local Radical dealer or email sales@radicalsportscars.com to be placed on the series mailing list.

March 23-25 Circuit of the Americas, Texas

April 27-29 Virginia International Raceway, Virginia

May 18-20 Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Ontario
