VW Cup opens free registration scheme
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.”
