Launched in 2000, (so celebrating it’sixteenth anniversary this year), the Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup is widely regarded as the most exciting saloon car championship in the UK. For 2015, we were yet again the only saloon support race in the prestigious British Formula 3/British GT Championship package.
The good news is that we are expecting 2015 to be the most successful year in the Championship’s history. We’ve got an exciting new-look for the cars and a fantastic new title-sponsor in Milltek Sport. There are new cars in-build, new teams and new drivers joining us, from novices to Touring Car drivers. We expect to have full grids all year, making the Milltek Volkswagen Racing Cup by far the most successful manufacturer-backed race championship in the UK.
What makes the Volkswagen Racing Cup unique? Well, if you are like us, you’ll enjoy a bit of variety in your motorsport. So, instead of being a ‘one-make’ championship where all the cars are identical, we encourage as much variety of Volkswagen as possible, all racing together.
The regulations are pretty innovative: we put all cars together into a single class based on power to weight ratios. This variety of machinery, representing Volkswagens of all types, has made for one of the most colourful and diverse grids in motorsport, and is always a real hit with spectators.
We have a beautiful race centre for drivers, teams and our guests to make the most of at every weekend, with high quality catering to make sure everyone enjoys their time away from the racing as much as the action on the track.
The double-header race format of the racing features seven weekends in the UK and Europe. For 2014, we will again be repeating our visit to the legendary Spa Grand Prix circuit in Belgium – always a favourite with drivers, fans and teams.
And we offer one of the most valuable prizes in British motorsport. Our Championship winner will be invited as a guest of our friends in Volkswagen Motorsport, Germany for a fully expenses-paid prize drive in the final round of the Scirocco R Cup at Hockenheim at the DTM finals – the experience of a lifetime for our winner.
High standards of driving and presentation befitting a championship with manufacturer backing and television coverage are expected of all participating drivers and teams. But above all, the Volkswagen Racing Cup remains a friendly championship where team spirit and camaraderie in the paddock count for more than on-track heroics.

We hope you’ll join us at a round or two in 2014!
