Inaugural Prototype Cup Calendar Confirmed

Six meetings for the series' first season

Following its inaugural race at Snetterton on the 9th October, Bute Motorsport is excited to announce the 2017 Prototype Cup calendar. The schedule will take in three of the UK’s top Grand Prix circuits and will feature a visit to the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium.

The 12-race calendar will start at Donington Park on the 22nd and 23rd April before heading to Brands Hatch and then Spa. The second half of the season will see the championship visit Snetterton before taking to the Grand Prix circuits at Silverstone and Donington Park. The championship (subject to MSA approval) will jointly headline an MSVR package with the GT Cup, also promoted by Bute Motorsport.

“We are really happy with the calendar,” said Bute Motorsport Director Hannah Wilson. “The Bute Motorsport team have worked very hard with MSVR to get all the dates and circuits we wanted. We’ve had a lot of interest in the series and this calendar will show people that we are serious about putting on an exciting and high profile championship.”
