Hot on the heels of the announcement that 1980 Formula One World Champion Alan Jones will be the face of Radical Australia in season 2018, comes news that RA Motorsports will once again become the exclusive Australian agent for the popular British-built race car, allowing the Sydney-based operation to offer a range of new incentives for the coming season.
Having just completed their ninth season of the successful Radical Australia Cup, RA Motorsports has initiated a number of major projects ahead of the 2018 calendar year, Alan Jones clearly one of those, but for Medland and Greg Smith – the two men behind the success of the category in Australia – there is even more to come as the 2017 season draws to a close.
The 2018 Radical Australia Cup will once more be the flagship for the category, with the opening round of the season kicking off for the fourth year in a row on the Bathurst 12-Hour schedule in early February. Whilst the Cup is campaigned across the international Radical format of 50-minute races, the SuperSport Series is a single-day sprint event with 15-20-minute races which has proven a great way to introduce drivers to the category.
Radical Australia also offer Radical track day events giving drivers new to the, 1500cc, 4-cylinder Hyabusa-powered SR3 an opportunity to gain valuable track experience without the pressures of high-stakes racing.
