British F3 - Sunoco Whelen Challenge

Sunoco Whelen Challenge

Competitors in the 2018 BRDC British F3 Championship are eligible for the Sunoco Whelen Challenge, one of Europe’s biggest motorsport prizes.

The overall winner of the prize will be rewarded with a drive in the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona in 2019 with the front-running Action Express team at the wheel of a Cadillac V.R. DPi car, with pre-event testing, flights, hotels and race suits included- a package worth more than $250,000.

British F3 drivers will be up against pro drivers from British GT3 and GT4 and the Radical Euro Masters for the prize, categories which all use Sunoco as a control fuel. All competing drivers will be awarded points for wins, top-10 race finishes, fastest laps and pole positions, with the driver with the highest average points securing the Daytona drive.

Felipe Nasr was the most recent British F3 competitor to win the Sunoco Whelen Challenge in 2012 and subsequently went on to finish on the podium in the race, before going on to race in GP2 and F1.

The Rolex 24 is one of the world’s foremost endurance races, and attracted a star line-up for the 2018 event including two-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso and previous BRDC British F3 race winner Lando Norris, as well as several NASCAR and Indycar front-runners. 2017 Sunoco Whelen Challenge winner Stuart Middleton finished second in the 2018-running of the world famous race.
