Protyre Formula Renault ‘Autumn Cup’ Announced


A four round Protyre Formula Renault Championship ‘Autumn Cup’ will take place at Rockingham this November.

The two-day event, which will take place on the 16th and 17th, will feature one qualifying session and two races contested on each day.

As well as the cars currently running in the Protyre Formula Renault series, pre-2006 Tatuus FR 2.0 chassis with the required engine restrictor in place will also be eligible to compete in a standalone class.

The championship ran a four-race Winter Series last season, with two races at Rockingham and two at Brands Hatch, won by Seb Morris.

“We’re very happy to confirm a four round Autumn Cup,” said championship promoter Simon North. “Running the entire event across just one weekend makes it much more cost-effective for the teams and drivers and we’re hopeful of seeing a healthy line-up.

“We’re offering a lot of track time, which is so important for drivers who may be considering racing in Protyre Formula Renault next year. The schedule we’ve created, with one qualifying session each day, seems to be very popular with the teams.”
