Second season schedule announced for UK’s premier prototype championship
The Henderson Insurance Brokers LMP3 Cup Championship returns for a second full season of racing in 2018, after Ecurie Ecosse with Nielsen Racing duo Alasdair McCaig and Colin Noble were crowned champions in the inaugural year.
The championship gets underway once again at Donington Park in April, then heads into the forests of Kent for two races on the famous Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit. Two weeks later the cars will return to the Ardennes for split-grid races with the GT Cup championship at the legendary Spa Francorchamps.
Snetterton hosts the mid-summer event to launch the second half of the season, with the second weekend at Donington in September on the Grand Prix configuration. The series closes at Silverstone in October, on the Grand Prix circuit, where new champions will be crowned.
Entries will open soon but those wishing to race in 2018 can contact Hannah Wilson, Race Manager & Director at Bute Motorsport, for further information, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01963 442787.
