Academy Training Programme

Step 1.

Firstly, you can choose from one of the 3 Funcup Experience options available to you. These packages have been designed for you to experience the a Funcup car first hand  with a Grade A ARDS instructor. If you are under 16 years of age, we can still arrange a test day for you.

Step 2.

It is advised that any interested parties order an ARDS pack from the MSA or Demon Tweeks (if you do not already hold a National B licence). Visit

Step 3.

Book your ARDS test. Your ARDS test can be taken at most circuits in the UK. The Funcup Academy recommend  Mallory Park, Donington Park or Rockingham Raceway. Remember, you do not need a UK driving licence in order to take your ARDS test.  You may be able to book your ARDS on the same day as your Funcup Experience. Should you wish, your ARDS test can be booked through the Funcup Academy. 

Step 4.

The Funcup Academy offer further driver training and tuition though out the year with a Grade A ARDS Instructor, VBOX on board analysis and footage. This is available in the twin seater Funcup car and single seater race cars. This support has been created to give you, the driver plenty of track time, training and support before your season in the Funcup Championship.

Signing up couldn't be easier. If you are looking for a full season, or ad-hock races, we can tailor a package to suit you. The Funcup Academy team are supported by race organisers JPR Motorsport. You will be a part of a team that is here to advise and mentor you though your season with Funcup.
