Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Max­i­mum Mo­tor­sport will take over the run­ning and pro­mo­tion of the Volk­swa­gen Rac­ing Cup this sea­son af­ter en­ter­ing a part­ner­ship with Volk­swa­gen Rac­ing UK.

The team headed by Ste­wart Lines al­ready op­er­ates the VAG Tro­phy, and the VW Cup will now join it as an MSVR reg­is­tered se­ries.

The VW Cup will re­main on the Bri­tish GT sup­port bill at six of its seven meet­ings this year, only miss­ing the Brands Hatch opener. In­stead, the VW Cup sea­son will be­gin at Don­ing­ton Park.

By bring­ing the two Volk­swa­gen cat­e­gories un­der the same team, it is in­tended to cre­ate a lad­der for driv­ers to progress up.

“The fit for us to run this along­side our VAG Tro­phy se­ries makes ab­so­lute sense and brings a lot of ef­fi­cien­cies be­hind the scenes,” said Lines. “We’ve got a great re­la­tion­ship with the Volk­swa­gen Rac­ing UK team, which will en­sure that we have a smooth han­dover and bring to­gether the best from both of our or­gan­i­sa­tions. All of which will be great news for driv­ers and teams as we move for­ward.”
