VW Cup opens free regis­tra­tion scheme

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

All com­peti­tors reg­is­tered for the VAG Tro­phy Cham­pi­onship will re­ceive free en­try into the Volk­swa­gen Rac­ing Cup this year af­ter a change in reg­u­la­tions.

Both cham­pi­onships are owned by the Max­i­mum Mo­tor­sport group, which is run by BTCC driver Ste­wart Lines. The change means that any driv­ers that have paid the £200+VAT regis­tra­tion fee for the sec­ond-tier VAG class won’t have to pay a sec­ond regis­tra­tion if they chose to en­ter the VW Cup, which races on the un­der­card of Bri­tish GT. The same ap­plies for reg­is­tered VW Cup driv­ers wish­ing to race in the VAG Tro­phy. Only 15 cars ran in the VW Cup opener at Rock­ing­ham last week­end

Lines said: “This is a great op­por­tu­nity for any com­peti­tor who is look­ing to progress from the VAG Tro­phy into the VW Cup and will help re­duce costs.

“There are a lot of com­peti­tors who wish to race in both se­ries. This is our way of en­sur­ing large grids at both events.”
