The Cars/Classes

The 2018 Australian Prototype Series will be made up of three classes:-

P1 & P2 (Kumho Cup): For each automobile complying with:

 – Group 6SR (Sports Racer)

 – Group 2PCN

 – Group 2A

 – Radical SR8

– Formula Libre Up To 1 Litre (FL1)

Radical/Supersport: For each automobile complying with:

– Radical SR3

– Minetti Supersports

Competitors in all classes will compete for the Outright Australian Prototype Series Championship as well as their own Class Championships.

Sport Racers
Sports Racers are a restricted design open, centre seated, sports-racing car with a mid-mounted engine driving the rear wheels. The Series currently includes many manufacturers Stohr, West, HRP, Prince & Speads.


CN Prototypes race competitively in the Asian LeMans Series, French-based V de V series and the new Creventic 24H Proto Series, launched this year, and also now here in Australia nationally.

The addition of CN Prototypes closes the gap to international-level Prototype competition and is set to make the Australian Prototype Series a legitimate pathway for drivers looking to access the increasingly popular LMP3 and LMP2-based series in Asia, Europe and America.

 

Formula Libre Up To 1 Litre (FL1)

The Australian Prototype Series also incorporates the Formula Libre Up To 1 Litre on our grid as a separate class. Trophies and class points will be awarded at each round. The FL1’s were created to bring together the latest in aerodynamic and mechanical design thinking. These high performance, wings and slicks open wheel cars utilise 1000cc motorcycle engines producing in excess of 185hp. All this combined with an ultra-light weight open wheel chassis and full aero produces fast paced, affordable racing action.




Radical/Supersport

The Australian Prototype Series also incorporates Supersport Cars including SR3 Radical and Minetti Sports Cars on our grid as a separate class. Trophies and class points will be awarded at each round.
The SR3 Radical Sports Cars have around 250bhp (190Kw) and 170Nm of torque in a sub-500kg package, these twin-seater open cockpit projectiles have true racecar credibility and at a 10.500rpm rev-limit, they sound every bit as good as they look.
