In 2021, FEL (Franczak Enterprises Ltd.), an automotive learning and promotion company, expanded its presence in Canadian motorsports.

FEL saw an opportunity to revitalize and reinvest in Canadian car racing. FELís foray into the 2017 Toyo Tires F1600 Series as a featured sponsor resulted in fields growing from twelve to fifteen entries to over thirty cars in just three years.

The company is now making its mark in the Touring and Sports Racer categories. The FEL Motorsports Sports Car Championship Canada is for vehicles prepared to GT4, TCR and TCA specifications. Various models of the purpose-built Radical SR3 sports racers compete in the Emzone Radical Cup Canada.

Emzone Radical Cup Canada drivers compete in two contests each race weekend.

  • May 17-19 - Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
  • June 20-23 - Calabogie Motorsport Park
  • July 18-21 - Honda Indy Toronto
  • August 30 - September 1 - Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
  • September 26-29 - Mont-Tremblant

The Emzone Radical Cup Canada series cars are built by the British manufacturer, Radical Sportscars. The company was founded by Mick Hyde and Phil Abbott in 1997. The early vehicles were road legal but were more popular as race cars. The Radicals used in the series are the SR3 model powered by an RPE - Suzuki four-cylinder Double Overhead Camshaft engine with a displacement of 1340-cc, which produces 170-rear wheel horsepower. The chassis is a space frame design with double wishbones, coil springs, adjustable shock absorbers, and roll bars. Stopping the SR3 are four-piston calipers front and rear with vented rotors. The Radicals use cast aluminum wheels fitted with 200/580/R15 tires on the front and 265/605/R16 on the rear.

New for this season is the Masters class for drivers 40-year of age and older. The class has a separate Masters championship

The Emzone Radical Cup Canada opening rounds were held at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park during the Castrol Victoria Day Speedfest. Drivers competed in two contests around the ten-turn 2.459-mile road course.

The start of round two for the 2024 FEL Emzone Radical Cup Canada, presented by Michelin at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Leading the field of fourteen competitors into corner one is the pole-sitter, Kenny Riedmann, in the No. 42 Riedmann Management Radical SR3 XX. Immediately behind Riedmann is the winner of Saturday's Masters' category and third-place starter, Tim Sanderson, driving the No. 07 Northwest Atlantic Motorsports Radical SR3 RSX.
Owen Clarke's first foray into the FEL Emzone Radical Cup series was the finale in 2021, winning the season's last race. Since then, he has only competed part-time. He will contest the full schedule in the No. 55 Mr Lube + Tires Radical SR3 XX this year. Clarke qualified third for race one, and when the leader, Kenny Riedmann, retired, he grabbed first place and the win. On Sunday, Clarke finished second to Riedmann by a margin of 5.868 seconds.
Last season, Kenny Riedmann finished runner-up in the FEL Emzone Radical Cup championship to Jake Cowden. This year, Riedmann is planning an all-out assault to capture the title. He started his campaign by putting the No. 42 Riedmann Management Radical SR3 XX on the pole. In the race, he had a comfortable lead when there was contact between him and a spinning Alana Carter. The damage forced Riedmann to retire. The next day, he redeemed himself with a flag-to-flag victory.
Local racer Tim Sanderson competes in CASC Ė Ontario regional races, driving a Porsche 911 in the VARAC Classic category and in the Formula Prototype class in a Radical, which means he is familiar with Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. As he is over 40 years old, Sanderson competes in the Masters class.† He qualified fifth overall for race one in the No. 07 Northwest Atlantic Motorsports Radical SR3 RSX and was first in his division. On Sunday, Sanderson delivered a repeat performance.
Travis Hill appeared on the series' opening weekend in the No. 22 TWOth Autosport Radical SR3 XXR. TWOth Autosport is owned by brothers Travis and Trevor Hill. Travis won the inaugural TCR FEL Sportscar Championship, while Trevor was the first to capture a title in the new TCA class. Travis qualified sixth fastest for round one. He passed Mark Boyd, Tim Sanderson and Chris Styles during the race and would inherit second when Kenny Riedmann retired. Hill ended the event with a third place.
