Brand new for 2023, the Coupe Cup series takes the well-known and well-loved format of the 116 Trophy and re-invents it in a newer, faster car.

As the 116 Trophy approaches capacity, both the Sprint Trophy and Coupe cup offer a fantastic alternative, especially for single-driver teams. During its inaugural season, the Coupe Cup will be sharing the starting grid with the Sprint Trophy, while entry numbers build. This means that both series will benefit from the same access to infrastructure and community support as the 116 Trophy.

The E82 120i Coupe is a well-loved car, with good reason. Capable of delivering more power than the Trophy and Sprint cars, but still utilising the same modified parts and, with donor cars available at around £5000, the Coupe Cup falls into a similar affordability bracket for teams, while further improving the offering for those who choose to compete with 116 Racing.


Our standard format provides drivers with an average of 50 minutes of track time per event, consisting of a qualifying session and two races of 15-20 minutes each.

The objective of our series is to maximise track time and enjoyment while keeping motorsport affordable for our competitors.


We strive to ensure that all of our series are as accessible and inclusive. We cater to novices and those on a budget, with experience, support and advice readily available from the series organisers, as well as a depth of expertise our teams provide. Whether you need car building services, race preparation and set up or you’d like to start your racing journey through arrive and drive.
