Additional Lotus Cup UK round announced

Posted by Andrew Cliffe On April - 26 - 2011

Lotus Cup UK grids have exceeded expectations, leading to additional sessions and an extra non-championship round

The inaugural Lotus Cup UK season has been extended with a non-championship round supporting the prestigious DTM series. The one-hour race will take place at Brands Hatch on the weekend of 2-4 September, where it will join the Elise Trophy.

The decision to extend the season is due to an increasing number of entries, which has also seen extra track time made available to drivers. A free practice session has been incorporated into the remaining rounds of the championship.

Series co-ordinator Paul Golding said, “the response from drivers to the new championship has been phenomenal, we only ever expected to have five rounds, we now have eight. The opening two have been great and when the opportunity to extend the season even further came up it was an easy decision to make. The DTM weekend last year was fantastic for us and this time it looks to be even better.
