2023 Civic Cup prize-winning drivers to receive TCR Test drive

The Milltek Sport Civic Cup will once again see its prize-winning drivers, from the 2023 season, given the chance to test drive a Maximum Motorsport-operated TCR Car at the end of the year.

Following a tradition that has taken place over the past few years as a reward to the top three drivers in the Cup Class and the top three drivers in the Production class, the 2023 test will see a change in drivers who are eligible.

This year, the Milltek Sport Civic Cup takes on a new structure with all cars competing to the Cup class regulations only. Falling in line with the TCR UK Touring Car Championship as one of its official feeder series, Civic Cup will mirror TCR UK for 2023.

The top three drivers in the overall championship standings at the end of the season will receive the TCR test drive, along with the Paul Winfield Trophy for Rookies winner and the winner of the Goodyear Diamond Trophy for drivers aged over 40. The championship will also use the same points structure as TCR this year.

This offers a new incentive to drivers taking part this year, with Civic Cup being a platform of progression where drivers have moved up to TCR UK in recent seasons and seen success, such as Bruce Winfield and Jamie Tonks.

Championship Promoter Stewart Lines expressed his delight with the TCR Test drive prize returning for another year.

“It’s fantastic to give something back to the drivers who work so hard to take part in the Civic Cup, which is recognised as the UK’s top single-make tin-top championship. To offer the prize of a test driving a TCR Touring Car also gives the top drivers in Civic Cup a chance to experience what the next level of Touring Car racing is like.”

The 2023 Milltek Sport Civic Cup season gets underway at Snetterton on the 300 circuit on the 8th and 9th of April, during the Easter weekend.
