Evantra should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The problem with Porsches for me are the drivers rather than the cars - no disrespect to anyone, but there's really only about half a dozen in the leading group. F4 always seems to be low on entries which doesn't help.

What the support package needs is another "saloon type tin-top" series. The last time we had one of those was the Vectra V6 Challenge - great cars, a shame it had such a poor uptake.

Personally I would like to see GT4 as a support race given how well it's doing in BGT, which is also the reason why it won't happen.

Clios are usually the best thing on the support package. For a while we had Fiestas and Clios, now that was brilliant.

I could see a Civic Type R cup working quite well decent power and handling in stock trim so would only need race prep like the Clios.

I'am sure there was some Seat Cupra at some point, enjoy the clios but something a bit bigger with more ooph would work for me. Like Porches but maybe a more affordable road car. Suburu Cup

With what exactly?


The WRX is soon to be killed off in the UK, the BRZ (in standard trim) would be barely faster than the Ginetta G40 GT5's then the rest of the range is SUV's with CVT gearboxes!

I've advocated a guest support race - be good to mix it up with some good club racers and historics.

If racing was still carrying on at Rockingham I'd have loved the Pickups on the oval as a guest support, sadly never going to happen though 😢

The problem with attracting a regular support series is that grid slots are significantly more expensive than standard club racing. The Ginetta Supercup and Clio season entry fee is £ 18.5k a year, whereas a club racer would probably pay £ 3k for the same amount of track-time per year - and thats before tyres, spares, fuel, accomodation...

I think they should just swap the Porsches or the big Ginettas for the Mini Challenge.

Each circuit has a club that generally treats it as their home circuit so I think they should have a different club series at each round from that track.
