It’s not the first time that someone from the UK has beaten a European team.
And this year, it’s not just the reigning champions that are taking the heat.
The Brits are looking to take home a second successive victory at the upcoming Summit Racing World Championship.
And their biggest challenger might not be a top European squad.
A series of hotshot race cars are set to take on the hottest British stars.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Summit Racing, who announced their first win of the season at the 2017 Formula 1 World Championship in Abu Dhabi.
The British outfit have been in the title hunt for the past two seasons, but the 2017 season was a different story.
Summit won only one race in the entire season, but they were able to clinch a spot at the World Championship thanks to a number of outstanding performances from their hotshot drivers.
It’s a remarkable feat, considering the team is still only one of four teams competing in the event.
Top Speed Motorsports (TSM) has also taken the lead in the championship, and their driver, Ryan Hunter-Reay, has won a number for the team in recent years.
TSM’s hotshot driver, Anthony Cooper, won the Formula Renault 2.0 series last season, and he is now looking to repeat that feat at the Summit event.
In terms of hotshots, TSM’s Anthony Cooper is the current reigning champion, and has a great record at the event, winning three races and posting an impressive 5.8 seconds per lap.
Another hotshot, Jason King, was recently crowned the world’s best driver in the Formula E series.
King’s record is even better than Cooper’s, winning both the Formula 1 and Formula Renault championships.
Last year, King posted a 0.7 seconds per race, which is the best mark for a driver at the summit event.
The other top hotshot team, Red Bull Racing, is also looking to claim a win this year.
Red Bull Racing drivers have won the past four Formula 1 championships, but this year’s season has been nothing short of outstanding.
They were second in the constructors’ championship last year, while qualifying for the event was one of the toughest events of the year.
This year’s event will be their second consecutive season, with two wins to their name.
In the standings, the Red Bull team has a commanding lead over TSM, with the Brits holding a commanding 12-point lead over the other two teams.
With the top three teams all vying for the title, there is no denying the momentum is building.
Although there’s still time to claim the title at the end of the weekend, the stakes are very high for the teams that are battling for the top spot at Summit.
We’ve seen teams dominate the standings this year but the top teams are not all playing it safe.
The two hotshots in contention are set for a battle for the championship.
