Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The win­ner of the Civic Cup in 2017 will be re­warded with a drive in a round of the sin­gle­seater MRF Chal­lenge event.

The Cup has teamed up with MRF, which will serve as the tyre sup­plier and pro­vide a truck at the tin-top cham­pi­onship’s rounds this year.

As part of that ar­range­ment, the over­all cham­pion of the se­ries – which will run as a sin­gle class in 2017 fol­low­ing mea­sures to equalise the per­for­mance of the pre­vi­ous Class A and B cars – will win a fully-funded ar­rive and drive pack­age to con­test one round of the MRF Chal­lenge, which is held in In­dia and the Mid­dle East. The prize is worth around £20,000.

The pack­age also in­cludes flights, ac­co­mo­da­tion and trans­port. Fully paid-up and reg­is­tered driv­ers who com­pete in six of the seven 2017 rounds will be el­i­gi­ble for the prize.

The win­ter MRF Chal­lenge se­ries is a sanc­tioned by the FIA and utilises cars built by Ital­ian man­u­fac­turer Dal­lara with a 250bhp Moun­tune en­gine.
