The Vauxhall Adam Cup is to launch in the UK this season, following a successful outing for Aaron Windus’s Cup-specification Adam at the 2017 Prestone MSA British Rally Championship.
The one-make series for controlled specification Vauxhall Adams will follow the first five rounds of this year’s Prestone MSA British Rally Championship, with younger competitors eligible to enter the increasingly popular BRC Cadet Class.
Cars will be based on those competing in the Opel Adam Cup in Germany with the addition of a UK-developed gravel kit for use on forest rallies.
“We are delighted to have finally brought everything together so that we can announce the running of the Adam Cup this season,” said series manager Simon Mauger.
“Of course, we would have liked to confirm things earlier, but with the prize fund in place, cars readily available – plus a valuable association with various suppliers and sponsors – we finally have a fantastic package on offer.
The prize fund includes vouchers redeemable for parts, products and services worth over £1000 awarded on each round, and a further haul of prizes presented at the end of the season.
The overall winner will receive a supported drive on the 2018 Dayinsure Wales Rally GB, or alternatively the first three rounds of the 2019 British Rally Championship should they wish to continue in their own car for the final two rounds of the British Rally Championship.
Supporting the series are brands that are synonymous with motorsport including Pirelli, Speedline Corse, Ravenol, Goodridge, PIAA, AP, Mintex, Motamec Tools and SuperPro.
