UK Sports Prototype Cup continues to grow in stature ahead of sophomore season

The UK Sports Prototype Cup is aiming to hit new heights during its sophomore season with the British Automobile Racing Club in 2020, and the signs already look promising following the latest sign-up of two more experienced race teams.

Having debuted in 2019, the series provides a multi-marque racing environment for lightweight sports prototype cars to compete in a premium race weekend package.

Competing within the category is the ever-growing Revolution A-One; an LMP inspired, carbon tubbed, high downforce prototype. Forming the backbone of the UK Sports Prototype Cup, the Revolution Race Cars outfit has become a popular draw for new and existing teams.

The latest editions to the grid for this season have been Greensall Motorsport and competitive Kwik Fit British Touring Car outfit Excelr8 Motorsport.

Excelr8 Motorsport’s Daniel Bishop said: “Prototype racing has always been a huge interest to me personally and also to other members of the team. Within Excelr8 we have the capacity to operate in one more discipline and this fits the bill perfectly.

“We have only had the car for a few days, but there is a huge buzz in the team and following this press launch we cannot wait to get on track with the car to start our programme and select drivers to race with us.”

Nigel Greensall added: “We were delighted to receive the Revolution at our Bruntingthorpe workshop last week and our technicians are very impressed with the car. We are excited for the start of the season and look forward to many years of working with the great team at Revolution.”

The 2020 edition of the UK Sports Prototype Cup is scheduled to begin with a double-header at Brands Hatch on August 1/2 before further events take place at Spa Francorchamps, Snetterton and Paul Ricard.
