The promoters of the RA Cup have introduced a modified program for the 12th
season of The Cup, a program which will see a slight departure from past seasons with a new venue to kick off the season, a changed date for the annual pilgrimage to Mount Panorama, and a ‘wildcard’ entry in Western Australia..
“We start the season in early March alongside the Australian Production Car Series at ‘home’ at Sydney Motorsport Park,” Category Manager Karl Reindler confirmed.
“From Sydney we head to Bathurst in early April for the Easter weekend - a departure from our last six seasons where Bathurst was the season-opener - a change in the program at Bathurst saw us faced with a date change, and with the popularity of the round, we were keen to ensure that Mount Panorama was a firm destination for next year. From Bathurst we head back to The Bend Motorsport Park in South Australia alongside the CAMS Nationals in mid-June. That event
proved very popular with the teams last year, and will make a great third round.”

“Then an event we’re still finalising, but really excited about. We’ve often spoken of mixing up our ‘away’ races - the events that are a little outside the normal Sydney-Melbourne east-coast program, and an option has come to compete at Barbagallo Raceway in Western Australia.
“Perth has a strong network of Radical drivers thanks to the ARISE drive day program based at Barbagallo where they regularly run the F1000 Series with a mix of cars including the SR3s, so there is the makings of a strong field there already.
“Whilst Perth looks every bit a fantastic event away from home, we’re still locking away the final details and are keen to get feedback from competitors. As a West Aussie I’m a convert about what a great weekend it would be, and we’re keen to ensure a program that sees everyone back on the eastern seaboard by Sunday night - one of the things we’re still locking way.”
“From Perth we head back to Phillip Island, but later in the year than we’d normally be there, so hopefully warmer weather, then conclude the season at Sandown in mid-September.
“All up it’s a good mix of events with two of Australia’s best circuits in Bathurst and Phillip Island leading the charge, a return to The Bend, and Perth as a ‘wildcard’ with few of our drivers having ever ventured that far west in the past, so we’re really looking to turn that into an event to
