Virage team boss Philippe Gautheron was delighted to confirm the offer of an LMP3 test for the 2019/20 Gulf Radical Cup Vice Champion.
Just a few months ago it was Ian Roberts who took this amazing prize. He later commented:
“At the start of last season I told myself that if by any chance I managed to win one of the two prizes offered by Gulf Radical Cup/GulfSport I would decline, but by the end of the season I was excited and ready for the chance to try the LMP3 car.
I have been a fan (observer) of motor racing my whole life, and never dreamed that I would have the chance to drive one of these cars. The fact that I did have the opportunity, and more importantly the skill, was simply mind blowing.”

Gulf Radical coordinator Fred Jacobs added:
“The Gulf Radical Cup has really been able to open the doors of high level European prototype racing and the UK Radical Cup with these prizes on offer. For many, its a dream to drive a car like this LMP3, but Ian Roberts (who never expected it) realised that dream last season. I hope more take that on board and come racing with us this season.”
