Inaugural Lotus Cup UK Champion set to be crowned at Brands Hatch

The Lotus Cup UK Championship goes down to the wire next weekend (22 October) at Brands Hatch and the inaugural champion will be crowned from the Production class as Ken Savage leads Steve Quick by just twelve points. Both drivers have fought a long and hard season not just in Lotus Cup UK, for Savage has taken several wins in the Elise Trophy, often against tough opposition from Quick, who won at Silverstone.

Meanwhile Steve Williams' class lead in the 2-Eleven category will come under serious attack from Mark Fullalove. The latter led the former to victory in the July rounds on the GP circuit and the former BTCC competitor must be favourite on the Indy loop. However multiple winner Simon Deacon cannot be counted out either, assuming he has a drive for the race following a car fire at the end of race two at Spa-Francorchamps.

Meanwhile Glenn Sherwood will be aiming to confirm the Exige Cup crown, whilst Vitthal Chauhan has done enough to claim the Open class honours. The final race for a successful championship, where grids for qualifying rounds have averaged over 40 cars, is joined by the ever-popular Elise Trophy, which concludes its season with two sprint races. Quick and Savage will be challenged by recent Brands Hatch winner Stuart Rowland and Spa-Francorchamps class victor Ben Hyland, whilst rookie Chris Dunster will be keen to cap an impressive season with success.
