FEL is excited to announce a new FEL Cup Championship in Canada for 2021.
After announcing the launch of a new sports car championship for Canada, FEL is announcing the launch of a new FEL Cup Championship for 2021. FEL is making a three year commitment allowing teams, drivers and sponsors to make investments.
FEL organized a Zoom meeting with the FEL Cup owners and drivers and had 46 people on the call. FEL took the same approached as with the sports car teams and asked for refundable deposits of $1,000. As of today there are 19 paid registration deposits. With somewhere around 40 FEL Cup race cars in Ontario and Quebec, FEL expects that number to grow.
“After talks with Robert Burgess from FEL Cup Canada and some of the teams, it became apparent that there was an opportunity to take FEL Cup racing in Canada to the next level. A racing series that offers value to the teams, drivers and sponsors,” FEL President Chris Bye said.
“With decades of experience as a driver, team owner and sponsor, I think FEL is uniquely positioned to raise the bar and give the FEL Cup teams the structure they have been looking for. Initial conversations with teams and sponsors have been very encouraging and we are looking forward to getting to work on this series,” Bye said.
A tentative series schedule will be released in the next few weeks.
