Sportscar driver Jason Rishover has confirmed a full-time switch from LMP3 to the Radical Challenge championship this year.
No stranger to the Peterborough manufacturer’s premier UK domestic series, having shown his potential in a number of appearances in the 226bhp SR3 throughout 2017 and 2018, Rishover returns to the Challenge fold with 360 Racing for all seven rounds this term.
The 51 year-old property development CEO from Bushey, Hertfordshire, commented: “I’m delighted to be committed to a full season of Radical Challenge. The series offers fantastic racing at great value, particularly for amateur drivers. I’m really fond of the Challenge paddock, it’s like one big family. The switch will help me to concentrate on consistency and push with the front runners for some podium finishes.”
Rishover is just one of the drivers taking full advantage of the revised format for Radical Challenge 2019, including a 20 per cent increase in track time with endurance events extended from 40 to 50 minutes. Most rounds will offer a 20-minute qualifying session, a 20-minute sprint race and two endurance events with compulsory pit stop across a condensed two-day format.
Outstanding incentives packages rewarding early-bird and full season commitment are on offer this year. Those signing up for the season in advance will also receive a complimentary set of Hankook tyres at the first round, plus an additional season hospitality pass.
