Sports Prototype Cup announces Formula 1 support bill slot on Portugal GP weekend

The Sports Prototype Cup has announced that it will feature as a support race during the Formula 1 Heineken Grande Prémio De Portugal at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve on October 23/24.

Fresh off the back of making its international debut alongside the FIA World Endurance Championship at Spa-Francorchamps on August 15/16, two races for the Revolution Trophy – which features the exciting Revolution A-One prototype, will take centre stage around the challenging track.

The two 40-minute encounters are open to registered Sports Prototype Cup teams and drivers to enter. In addition, Revolution will also be offering new-build cars for sales or race-hire for this event and the full 2021 season.  

James Bailey, Sports Prototype Cup Promoter, said: “To race at one of Europe’s most challenging circuits in front of F1 fans is a privilege for our drivers and teams.

“We’ve already provided some sensational racing at Brands Hatch and Spa-Francorchamps this year and the Grand Prix support race is a fabulous opportunity to showcase the performance of the Revolution A-One and the depth of our grid of drivers and teams.”

Phil Abbott, Revolution Race Cars Managing Director, added: “We are proud that the Revolution A-One has been approved as a support race for the Grand Prix.

“We set out to design a car that is at the cutting edge of customer motorsport, with advanced technology, innovative design, high downforce and forgiving handling. It’s the perfect car for such a demanding circuit.”
