Season 4 Launch and Rules
We will be releasing the rules and entry form for season 4 in mid July. Generally speaking the rules will be much the same with the following tweaks so far:
-More cars will be eligible with the eligible cars list having a major overhaul, this list will be released in the coming week.
-There will be a drop round those who enter all rounds going into the last round. The drop round will see your worst result replaced with a number of points such as 100 (still TBC). This is to reward those that attend all rounds but also works to keep more teams in the hunt and means you can buy a dud, blow it up at the first round and still have a chance from the second round onward.
Provisional Season 4 dates are as follows:
24/25 Sept Waikato Challenge Hampton
22/23 October Manawatu Car Club Manfield
3/4 December 2K Master Hampton
4/5 March Thunder in Park Pukekohe
8/9 April Great Lakes Taupo
6/7 May Season Finale International track Hampton
Yes you did read that right, our last round will be on the new International Circuit at Hampton Downs where we are keen to have at least 1 full grid which I believe is ~58 Cars. We will also plan to have the race days on the single day again as per previous seasons.
2KCUP Official Brake Supplier
I would like the personally thank EBC brakes for their support over the last 3 seasons. It has been appreciated by many and can be attributed in part to the success of 2KCUP. I know they have saved the bacon of a few drivers by opening up shop when someone has had a last minute brake dilemma.
Due to some cars not suiting the EBC pad due to undersized rotors generating way to much heat we have chosen to partner with Endless Brakes for the upcoming season and their logo and details will be provided from next newsletter onward, it’s also no secret that all the top cars in the 2KCUP run Endless. Give Mike at Prosport Auto a call on 09 238 3560 for a special deal including 10% off and a free bottle of brake fluid.
