Compact Cup Race Calendar
(1) Silverstone Int
08:00 - 17:00
Following on from the hugely exciting end to our 2016 season on the Silverstone International Circuit, it seems befitting that our 2017 season kicks off at the very same venue. Whether it’s wet or dry the racing is always fantastic, and the fast and technical layout certainly favours the brave. As well as the drivers, the cars themselves are pushed almost beyond their limits in terms of mechanical reliability, performance and handling so here’s hoping those pre-season rebuilds and preparations have been thorough!
In the 2016 season finale, it took until the last corner of the last race before we knew that James Gornall would be crowned the deserving champion, and because he enjoyed last season so much “Jiggy” is back in 2017 to defend his crown. Although a couple of his challengers from last season have moved on to other things, very quick 2016 Compact Cup racers like Steven Dailly, Ian Jones, Sam Carrington Yates and Owen Hunter will all fancy their chances of fighting for the 2017 top spot. We also have to bear in mind that quite a few of our midfield pack from last season were only in these positions due to bad luck or reliability issues, and certainly not a lack of race winning pace!
So, stick Sunday 9th April in your diaries, because even before a wheel of our 2017 season has turned it’s already shaping up to be yet another exciting, close and competitive season in the Nankang Tyre BMW Compact Cup Championship.
