Sir Chris Hoy to race Revolution A-One at Portuguese F1 Grand Prix support round of Sports Prototype Cup

 

Great Britain’s most successful Olympian, Sir Chris Hoy has been looking forward to getting back into a Revolution A-One since he briefly tested one back at the start of the year before the lockdown. It is now confirmed he will race in the Revolution Trophy class of the Sports Prototype Cup at both Snetterton (19th September) and Portimão during the Formula One Grand Prix weekend (22nd-24th October).

´I was very impressed by the car and I was very keen to race it,’ said Sir Chris, who was the European Le Mans Series LMP3 champion in 2015 and raced at Le Mans in LMP2 the following year. ‘That was before Covid changed everything, so when I heard there was an opportunity at Portimão I jumped at the chance. It’s a great car, easy to drive and very well engineered, but I know the competition will be tough, which is why I’ll also be at Snetterton as that’s the perfect opportunity to get my eye in. It’s been a while since I’ve driven a proper downforce car and I really want to make the most of this opportunity.’
