Trophy of the Dunes

Next up for Revolution Race Cars is the Dutch Supercar Challenge Trophy of the Dunes, at Circuit Zandvoort this coming weekend.


This weekend is not a championship round of the Sports Prototype Cup, but is an invitational race meeting that a number of Revolution drivers did not want to pass up.


The Trophy of the Dunes is a historic event made famous during the 70's but has had a resurgence in recent years with VRM breathing new life into the Trophy. The Supercar Challenge powered by HANKOOK has been a leading, FIA-approved National racing series for years with a beautiful calendar and a good atmosphere. It has proven to be a golden formula with a combination of professionals, semi-pros and gentleman drivers in super-fast GTs, prototypes and touring cars, in semi-endurance races, on the most beautiful circuits around Europe.


Representing Revolution Race Cars this weekend are:

  • Richard Morris and Milan De Laet : 500SC : #500

  • Joaquim Penteado : 500SC : #577

  • Jim Booth : 500SC : #563

That is an international mix of drivers, with the UK, USA, Portugal and Belgium being represented. Richard Morris, having won race two at the event last year, is returning to attempt the double!

Circuit Zandvoort

Circuit Zandvoort is known as a true 'Old School' circuit, with fast and challenging curves formed by the natural dunes. The track is a 4.259 km (2.646 mi) motorsport race track located in the dunes north of Zandvoort, the Netherlands, near the North Sea coast line. It returned to the Formula One calendar in 2021 as the location of the revived Dutch Grand Prix.


The Sports Prototype Cup

Up next for The Sports Prototype Cup is the final two rounds of the year, Spa and Le Mans on October 13-15 and November 10-12 respectively.


Both events feature the three regular Sports Prototype Cup classes: Revolution Trophy, Radical Trophy and the Sports Prototype Open for a wider range of models. To guarantee a large grid and close, friendly racing, the Cup will share with other championships at both events, including the French-based Funyo Sportprotos.
