EFRA started this last year probably because of a few reasons :-

1- the number of entries were always over-subscribed resulting in a lot of people not being able to get slots to race (slots are allocated by country).

2- the top guys are almost always sponsored and thus would always occupy the top 20 or 30 places anyway so they may as well go race with each other in peace

3- encourage more to race at the European level (with the slots vacated by the pros).

So, depending on your European ranking (top 25) you are an "A" driver and thus not allowed to race in the "B" while those who are not classified as European A can race in either the A (known as just the Euros) or the B Euros.

If I get the above wrong, they are just opinions anyway and I'm sure someone will come and correct me.

I guess for an American it's easier to understand this way:

EC-A = Sprint Cup
EC-B = Nationwide Series

Stefan, I disagree a bit ... natioanwide implies its only one whole nation but the Euros (B or A) is for all European countries). Its quite something to race with folks from different countries.

What is the Sprint Cup?

Wouldnt it be more like Champ Car - to Indy Light series ?

Champ car being the elite..


Or F1 compared to Champ Car - F1 being the "elite" - sorry, more money backed drivers

It's high time the Americans started fitting in with the rest of us and stop making up rules to suit themselves............

Why everyone agrees to what they say or want is beyond me. Not sure who's at fault more......... the Americans for being that way.......or the rest of the world for allowing them to be that way!???

I hold my head sometimes I really do!

Yes, perhaps that comparison is a little closer.

Ok, not the direction I thought this would take. Think about this kids, they race the same class, same cars the only difference is the drivers... anyone know what the actual reason is?

FYI a lot of US motorsports race in the rain. Sprint Cup(formerly nextel cup) doesn't run in the rain mainly because they run on ovals. Try running an oval race in the rain and see how fun/ safe it is. Every race series I have been involved in races rain or shine (within reason) Star Mazda, Formula Atlantic, Champcar (well they don't race anywhere anymore which is a shame... ) Mustang Challenge all race race rain or shine..

and the for the americans to understand comment, that didn't even make sense and I work in motorsports. The sprint cup is a nationwide series guy..
