Riley Phillips is competing in the Fun Cup Endurance Championship 2023 with Team Olympian. First conceived in Europe in 1997 and arriving in the UK in 2002, the Fun Cup Endurance Championship provides some of the best value endurance racing with identical cars and up to as much as 50 hours’ worth of driving time in an entire season. In 2019 Riley became the youngest ever BRSCC FunCup Endurance winner at 16 years old and in 2020 the youngest ever champion. Riley is keen to reclaim the championship again this year.

During the first race at Brands Hatch Team Olympian began their pursuit of the championship in superb fashion. With a wet surface and rain throughout the race was made tougher. The team were in P5 coming into the last stint, the final pitstop was so fast Riley didn’t even have time to connect his radio! But came out in P2 and then went on to build 53s lead and win the 1st Round. Great work by Riley and all the Olympian Team.
Riley’s next race will take place at Snetterton in May where they will be looking to carry on their strong start.
