Radical Cup North America[edit]

Official Fuel: 100 octane ethanol-free gasoline provided by Gulf Racing Fuels[6]

The series features multi-class Le Mans style racing and as a feeder series has produced countless talents including 2017 PWC GTSA champion George Kurtz and 2017 European Le Mans Series LMP3 champion John Falb. Eligible cars include the Radical SR3 RSX 1340 & 1500, as well as the 400 horsepower V8 engine SR8.
