F1 support race return announced for Sports Prototype Cup at Monza

The Sports Prototype Cup and Revolution Trophy will make a return to the Formula 1 paddock on September 10/11/12 as an official support race for the FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN GRAN PREMIO D’ITALIA at Monza.

Following on from a hugely successful debut at the FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN GRANDE PRÉMIO DE PORTUGAL last year, the popular one-make series will once again take on a starring role as it tackles the infamous high-speed Italian venue.

With the Revolution A-One having turned plenty of heads already, it is believed that Monza’s combination of fast, flowing corners and challenging chicanes will perfectly demonstrate the high downforce and exquisite design of the car, which complies with the latest FIA safety regulations.

James Bailey, Sports Prototype Cup Promoter, said: “We’re thrilled to confirm a return to the Formula 1 paddock for Sports Prototype Cup and the Revolution Trophy. Our debut Formula 1 support race last year was a resounding success and brought the Revolution A-One to new audiences.

“Adding Monza to the calendar provides our customers with a rare opportunity to race on one of the most famous Grand Prix tracks in the world, in front of the ‘Tifosi’ on a Formula 1 weekend.”

Phil Abbott, Revolution Race Cars Founder & Managing Director, added:  “Our 2021 car moves the Revolution A-One to a new performance level with 530hp/tonne, enhanced aerodynamics and the highest safety levels in its class with the innovative full carbon construction and double-halo head protection.  It will be perfectly suited to the fast and flowing Monza track.” 

The two scheduled Monza races are now open for Sports Prototype Cup teams and drivers to enter. The 2021 season for the category is scheduled to begin on May 29 at Silverstone.
