About the Scottish C1 Cup
New for the 2019 season, the Scottish C1 Cup – backed by the Scottish Motor Trade Association – aims to bring budget racing back to Scotland.
This championship represents an opportunity for you to own your own racing car, become a racing driver and compete for a full season at Scotland’s premier racing circuit, Knockhill, for less than £6,500!
To keep the racing exciting and the costs under control, the Citroen C1 Cup cars run to very simple but tight regulations. The race cars are almost literally a C1 road car with a roll cage bolted in, meaning that you can build a car – from start to finish – over the course of a weekend, if you’re in a rush (check out our video to see how we did it HERE).
The C1’s 1 litre power unit may not make them the fastest race cars on a Scottish Championship race weekend but we guarantee that racing door handle to door handle around the humps and bumps of Knockhill racing circuit will bring a smile to any racers face – whether you’re a seasoned campaigner or a complete newcomer.
Alongside the battle for the outright championship, the series will feature a Newcomers Cup for anyone who has not held a Motorsport UK competition licence before. There will also be a ‘Teams Cup’ for the top performing team car across the year (this is suited to those who can’t commit to all the Championship rounds, allowing two or more drivers to share one car and score points collectively across the year).
Additionally, if you’re feeling ambitious, there are C1 Cup endurance races held throughout the UK and even at Spa-Francorchamps, where a 24 hour race is run annually.
