2020 Season Review: Carbon8 Hyundai Coupe Cup

Championship titles may not have been on offer but the spoils of race wins was more than enough to spark a fire in the Carbon8 Hyundai Coupe Cup this past season, with Mark Dicken ending the year as the most successful competitor.

Roaring into life several years ago, the Coupe Cup has made a name for itself a budget conscious, single-make category for first and second generation two-lite Hyundai Coupe machines.

Continuing to grow in stature each year, 2020 presented a unique campaign for the series but it underlined its popularity by producing mammoth grids and enthralling races, sometimes sharing the track with the Uncle Luke’s BARC Saloon Series.

Kicking off proceedings at Snetterton with a record-breaking 25-car grid, Dicken reigned supreme in both encounters around the Norfolk venue’s 300 layout, edging out Alex Cursely each time.

Mallory Park provided the next step on the calendar and it would see the roles reversed at the front of the field as Cursely this time came to the fore with a double-winning performance of his own.

Dicken cemented his status as the man to beat at Oulton Park, bringing the curtain down on a shortened yet memorable campaign by chalking up his third win of the year.
