The 2012 Fun Cup championship will kick-off in style at Donington Park this weekend, with a massive twenty eight cars and around ninety drivers taking part. The stage is set for a super competitive round, with many of the teams now having converted to a petrol sequential car over the winter.
Fun Cup is delighted to inform teams that we have added a "day into night" 12 hour (non-championship) round to the 2012 calendar. The event will take place on the 9th and 10th November and we will be sharing the circuit with the Mazda championship. This means that we can only accept the first 22 Fun Cup entries. After this, all entries will be placed on a reserve list. Depending on the amount of Mazda's racing, circumstances may change, which will allow a greater number of Fun Cup starters.
Nineteen Fun Cup teams and over sixty drivers entered the Fun Cup Karting Challenge on the 3rd March, in aid of Claire House Children's Hospice. Once again, the Fun Cup teams showed fantastic generosity and commitment for Claire House, a charity close to everyone's hearts. The final total raised was around £4,000, taking the grand total raised for Claire House by Fun Cup teams, to a staggering near £33,000. This is simply incredible and thank you to everyone who contributed.
Fun Cup would like to thank Kev Matthews and Chrissy Bunbury for their fantastic pictures from the Autosport Show 2012, which can be viewed on this site. The photographers from Raceography, will be taking more pictures of all the action throughout the 2012 season. You can visit their website by clicking on http://www.raceography.co.uk/
