Hyundai Coupe Cup set to continue with standalone contests
The Hyundai Coupe Cup held its first standalone races at Rockingham earlier this month, after switching from the Track Attack Race Club to the British Automobile Racing Club.
The series attracted a record 15 cars for the opening round and that number is set to rise.
Championship organiser Jon Winter said: “It was brilliant, I couldn’t ask for much more. It created a real buzz just from having our own standalone races.
“It was our first race meeting after joining BARC’S roster. It’s a series I’ve worked on for four or five years and moving to BARC has made it what it should be – we fit in nicely with their roster. They don’t really have a budget series and we are bargain basement, pulling new people into motorsport.
“It’s been a long, hard slog but now it’s in the right place and there should be more cars out later in the year.”
Ian Goodchild won the first race at Rockingham, while Winter was victorious in the second after a last-lap move.
The next round is at Cadwell Park on May 14/15.
