Series Elite have taken the decision to cancel the next round of their opening season, at Brands Hatch in Kent, until electronic software issues that developed over the course of the maiden race weekend at Silverstone can be ironed out ahead of an increased grid at Donington Park in August.
After making their first race debut at Silverstone, with four cars taking to the grid, two more cars and drivers were due to take to the track. However a six car/driver grid will compete at the Leicestershire track in August.
‘”This decision hasn’t been taken lightly” added Series Elite founder, Graeme Glew. “But we have to be professional, if that means putting more miles under the belts of the Series Elite Project 8s to iron out any issues, then that’s what we need to do.
We want to see these cars competing, the racing we saw at Silverstone proved that the field is equal and close with two seconds covering the four finishers. We think we know what the problem is and Jaguar SVO are assisting us in resolving these niggling issues”.
The opening race of the season were both won by Corbeau Managing Director, Vic Lee. After two intense fought battles with Nick jarvis.
The Donington Park round will take place over the weekend of the 10/11th August, and will support the British Truck Racing Association Championship, around the venue’s National layout.
