15 July 2003../The recent announcement of a new motor racing series for Britain has received the support of industry and fans alike. The series organisers are responding to enquiries from teams and manufacturers who have shown extremely positive interest in the SCV8 Supercar Championship and plans are moving forward rapidly for its introduction on to the British motorsport calendar in 2004.

Roger Etcell, one of the directors of the series, explains, "Since we announced the series a couple of weeks ago, my phone has been getting hotter and hotter with strong support from teams, drivers and other industry people. We're getting the positive feedback that we need to turn our plans into reality and see a great grid of cars next year, which is extremely encouraging."

A presentation introducing the SCV8 Championship to prospective teams and drivers will be held on 29th July and the recently announced SCV8 Jaguar X-type will be unveiled at this event.

The new SCV8 Supercar Championship is well advanced in its development and plans for introduction next year. The series is set to see popular manufacturer examples battle on track with the aim of bringing fans a series that features the excitement and spectacle of extremely high performance, yet easily recognisable, saloon cars for fast and furious championship racing. The big horse power, rear wheel drive configuration of the cars guarantee crowd pleasing action and has been designed to add more spectacle in British motor racing.
