Entries are now officially open for the highly-anticipated 2024 Sports Prototype Cup. The Cup, proudly sponsored by PitBox91, features a revamped structure and an expanded race calendar catering to a diverse range of prototype enthusiasts. The upcoming season, set to kick off at Zandvoort from April 12-14, will showcase an exhilarating array of races on the iconic Formula 1 circuit.
A distinctive feature of the Sports Prototype Cup is its commitment to mixed prototype racing, with three revamped categories: Sports Prototype Light, Sports Prototype Open, and the Revolution Trophy. These categories, running to the local sporting regulations of partner championships in each country, ensure that each event is a unique and thrilling experience for participants and spectators alike.
The season opener at Zandvoort will set the stage for an action-packed weekend, including three races on the Formula 1 circuit. The event format is designed to accommodate both solo and two-driver entries, with a generous 60 minutes of practice/qualifying followed by two 25-minute sprint races and a 40-minute mini-enduro.
The Cup operates on an international scale, welcoming both National and International license holders. Notably, 'foreign permission' is required for all participants, a requirement clearly communicated on UK and German licenses. For license holders from other countries, many supply a separate accompanying letter for presentation during the signing-on process. The Sports Prototype Cup organisers are dedicated to facilitating this process and providing assistance as needed.
At the Autosport Show last week, Revolution Race Cars revealed that Marcus and Morgan Short, sons of racing veteran Martin Short, will be joining the Cup for the entirety of the 2024 season. The Short brothers aspire to follow in their father's footsteps, aiming for victory in international prototype racing and building on the family's racing legacy that saw Martin Short leading the Le Mans 24h in 2005. The addition of such dynamic new teams and drivers adds an extra layer of excitement and anticipation to what promises to be a remarkable season of Sports Prototype Cup action, supported by PitBox91.
