Anyone know if the base model for a supercup car must be a sport model?

That's what the regs seem to say but surely any mk3 2.0 fitted with the correct 6spd gearbox would be fine?

Hi Paul,

I'm not after a race car, I'm looking to start with a track car (as a replacement for my Mk1) then steadily build it up but with one eye on the supercup regs - it might happen 1 day...

Do you happen to know if I'd have to buy the sport model?

Ps. Have enjoyed reading your threads over the years, even the painful mk4 ones, thanks for your commitment!

The cars only have to meet the specification of a 2.0 Sport model, but could have originally started life as a base model 1.8 and still be eligible.

 

If you're thinking of jumping right in, my very competitive SuperCup race car happens to be for sale at the moment....

Iirc for supercup you need a 2.0 with six speed box & diff, but I don't see any reason why you couldn't start with a none sport and change box/diff as you go along.....

Check out my Facebook page....for a very competitive priced race car

That is a good price... I didn't know there was a different roll cage for each championship though?

The SuperCup cars all have to use the same roll cage so there's no advantage for anyone and it can also fit under a hard top, but in Max5 there's a few different options you can use.

 

By the looks of things Paul, that car doesn't have a Safety Devices roll cage? So wouldn't be eligible for the SuperCup at the moment.
