2021 rules are here! Yep that's right... the amazing crew at the AASA have helped us with a first in Australia! A national series rule book a that includes hybrid drivelines!
This is big! And it will keep racing viable into the future! Imagine a bolt on 110kw boost in power that comes from collecting energy under brakes!
Or a driveline combination of a screaming worked 200kw Suzuki Hayabusa engine and gearbox with the output shaft going through a 200kw Tesla Model 3 driveline. All the noise, all the sequential gear changes, 400+kw of power in a light weight package that uses waste energy to make you go faster.

With the first round not until April, you will all have plenty of testing time to get all your new builds and off season jobs spot on!
We will also have a large break between Round 2 and Round 3 so you can participate in your state/club championship.
You have read that right! The Thunder Sports Cup in conjunction with our sanctioning body the AASA is leading the way in creating a relevant and sustainable future for Motorsport in Australia.
Our 2021 rule update includes a Hybrid section that will keep us relevant into the future, and creates another option on how to go fast in the cars you build!
The AASA has approved our 2021 rules in principle and is in process of working with their incident response teams to clarify and produce an Electric Vehicle response plan for recovery before the rules are finally signed off.

The Thunder Sports Cup is a professional standard Motorsport event for grass-roots competitors! With one of the most open circuit racing technical rule books in Australian Motorsport, the emphasis is on maximum fun in loud, angry looking race cars.
With the Series Rules and sponsorship that we have in place, our aim is to accommodate the grass-roots competitor, providing them with maximum fun and bang for buck! This makes The Thunder Sports Cup perfect for the “Garagista”, a term coined by Enzo Ferrari to describe the small back-yard racing teams that dared to challenge and beat a grand Constructor like himself.
In 2020 The Thunder Sports Cup will be 4 rounds with the Australian Motor Racing Series. A true National Category with drivers from 4 states racing across Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales, there is a live stream and loads of highlights for the fans to catch all the action.
The Technical Rules are the same for all competitors, however under the Series Rules there are two classes - Class A and Class B. Whilst both classes are on the track at the same time, they are in their own race with each class having their own outright winner, own podium and own points.
If you think you car may fit but are unsure please contact us, if your car is in the spirit of the class there is a good chance you can run.
