Britain’s leading VAG parts provider Awesome is to join forces with the Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup for the coming season. Manchester-based Awesome, which this year celebrates 25 years in business, becomes a championship partner for the start of what promises to be – appropriately enough – an awesome season of competition in the VW Cup.
“We have been involved on and off over the years with various teams in the VW Cup, and when the opportunity arose to sponsor the series itself we jumped at the chance,” said Awesome’s business development manager Wayne Ainsworth. “Our aim with the partnership is to get the Awesome name out to a broader market, and to show our support to the industry. Motorsport is engrained into British society and it is something we want to be a part of.”
Over its 25 years in business Awesome has built itself into the largest UK aftermarket performance parts provider to the VAG market. The firm is a UK distributor for VW Racing, APR, 034 Motorsport, Vagbremtechnic, Neuspeed, ECS Tuning and ITG products, and is active in a host of events and UK car owners clubs and forums, priding itself on having a following of loyal customers.
Matt Walker, championship manager, said: “Awesome by name and awesome by nature: it is a great company to work with and the Awesome crew will bring a lot to the championship and its competitors.”
The first meeting of the Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup is early next month at Oulton Park in Cheshire – qualifying and the first race of the weekend are set for Saturday 4 April, and there will be a further double-helping of race action on Easter Monday, 6 April.
