Maximum takes over the Volkswagen Cup
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.”
