Gulf Radical Cup

The first season of the Gulf Radical Cup kicked off in January 2006, since when it has become the longest running race series in the region.

It has attracted more than 100 amateur racing drivers from the UAE and beyond, some of whom have moved on to higher levels of international endurance racing including the Radical European Masters, ALMS, Le Mans, WEC, Porsche GT3 and Creventic 24H Series.

The promoter of the series, GulfSport Racing ( who have been involved with Radical since racing a Radical 1100 Clubsport in 2002, provide a full dealer sales and technical support service to all Radical customers in the UAE.

The Radical SR3 on Hankook slicks is eligible for championship points and provides a cost effective and level playing field for competitors who compete on a variety of circuit configurations on the Dubai Autodrome and Yas Marina Circuit, including the Grand Prix Circuit in Abu Dhabi used for Formula One.

The 6 x event / 12 x 45 minute race season runs as a winter series in typically perfect dry weather racing conditions which makes it an attractive destination for overseas drivers and their families.

Race prepared cars and support services are available from a variety of experienced local teams for visiting drivers from other Radical racing countries. Races are run to Radical’s global standards and endurance format, which includes a compulsory pit stop during a mid-race pit window enabling two drivers to share a car and expenses.

The 2018/19 Champion will be offered a Radical works drive at a UK event or a test with the Virage Group in an LMP3.
