The reigning Radical SR1 Cup UK champion, Daryl DeLeon Taylor, has been called up for driver duty once again. This time he’s racing against the fastest Radical drivers in the world at the first-ever Radical Cup World Finals in Las Vegas.
Happening from the 10th to the 13th of November 2022, a total of 36 cars will take to the grid of the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch for a one-race shootout style event. Daryl is lucky enough to have been given a slot in the top-tier Platinum Category where he will make an attempt to be world champion in a Radical SR10 run by Valour Racing. Though it shares some similarities to the SR1, its 425 bhp 2.3L turbo RPE-Ford engine is a far cry from the 182 bhp Daryl is more accustomed to. Still, we expect the Filipino-British driver to put up a fight despite this being his first outing in unfamiliar machinery and on a track he’s never driven before.
The 17-year-old will be the lone driver to race the Philippine flag over the weekend. He will only have a few practice sessions on Thursday to familiarize himself with the 5.20 km circuit before Qualifying and Heat 1 takes place on Friday. Heats 2 and 3 are scheduled on Saturday, followed by the all-important 40 minute Radical World Final on Sunday.
Daryl DeLeon Taylor: “I’m going to the Radical Cup World Finals in Las Vegas with anticipation of a good result against the best drivers in a Radical. I’m happy that I will be racing an SR10 in the top Platinum Class, so fingers crossed I should be running at the sharp end.”
