The Endurance Racing Series has announced that the 2015 Atom Cup will join the ERS at selected rounds. The Atom Cup, the UK’s only racing series for the Ariel Atom, will join the ERS at Rockingham in July, Donington in August and at Spa in October to add endurance racing to the Atom Cup’s roster of sprint races.
Atom Cup Team Principal Peter Ferrigno said “We have been looking for some way to provide our Atom Cup drivers with a two driver long distance race for some time now, and running as a class in the Endurance Racing Series gives us the best way to do this. As a premium series for a high quality manufacturer like Ariel, we want to be on the best tracks in the UK, and ERS give us the ability to do that. Plus, ending the season at Spa is a dream come true for some of our drivers”.
Endurance Racing Series Director David Hornsey said “Having the Atoms on board will be great for us. The Atom Cup is famous for close fought races, it will be good to see how this pans out over a longer event of two or three hours.”
