THE BEST season yet will see the Workhorse Radical Cup Australia Series compete at some of the best circuits in Australia in 2024.
A five-event calendar has been confirmed which includes a return to the Supercars program plus a visit to Mount Panorama, Bathurst, for a huge season finale’.
It’s a substantial step up on 2023, which despite a logistically challenging calendar still saw an average of 20 cars compete across the five round series – won by teenager Alex Gardner in a final-round showdown two weeks ago in Sydney.
The 2024 season commences with the Shannons SpeedSeries on April 12-14 at the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit, a favourite among Radical competitors and a staple of the calendar since season one.
From there the field will cross the Nullarbor to compete at the Perth SuperSprint event at Wanneroo Raceway, marking a return to both the West and to the iconic circuit just north of Perth itself.
Wanneroo is the home of Arise Racing, one of the key outfits competing in Radical Cup Australia.
The series’ raced there in 2022 with a strong field putting on a great show for the West Aussie Supercars fans.
The field then returns to Shell V-Power Motorsport Park in South Australia, racing alongside the Lamborghini SuperTrofeo Asia event at the South Australian venue.
This international event started strong in 2023 and is set to build next year, with Radical offering their own international-style racing to the program.
A return to the Shannons SpeedSeries will see the strong Sydney contingent of SR3 competitors get their time at a home circuit, Round 4 to be held at Sydney Motorsport Park on October 18-20.
The grand finale’ will then be held at the most epic location possible – the famous Mount Panorama circuit alongside the 2024 Supercheap Auto Bathurst International.
Four of the five rounds will feature live broadcast television, including coverage on Fox Sports and Kayo for the Perth Supercars round. The Lamborghini SuperTrofeo event at The Bend will be streamed live, while Shannons SpeedSeries broadcast details are yet to be announced.
“In many ways, the 2023 calendar was a compromise however 2024 is what we see as the best version of a Radical Cup Australia calendar,” Category Manager Charise Bristow explained.
“It’s a great mixture of events and dates that give time for our teams and drivers between rounds, but still deliver great value for everyone involved.
“We were so well supported by our teams and competitors this year we wanted to make sure that their commitment and support was rewarded with the best possible calendar for next year and this delivers that and much more.
“We’re pleased to be heading back to the West so Arise Racing can have a home round once again, and to give the series a presence on the Supercars calendar.
“Drivers love The Bend, so it’s great to be there with the Lamborghini series, while the Shannons SpeedSeries continues to grow, and they have a lot of exciting things planned for 2024.
“Finishing at Bathurst is set to be a highlight and will be an incredible way to end the season.”
