With two wins under his belt from last Saturday's Dutch rounds of the Volkswagen Racing Cup with FUCHS Lubricants, it’s no surprise to learn that Steve Chaplin loves the circuit of Zandvoort. The Beetle-driving reigning champion not only won both races but also claimed the fastest lap in each, and a new lap record. Shrewd playing of his points-doubling ‘Joker’ card in the first race has also brought him a handsome championship lead.

Seventeen-year-old Zoe Wenham delighted everybody, including herself, with a fantastic second place in race two. “What a great race. I can’t wait to do the same in England,” the Golf GTI racer said after her superb performance.

Not everybody was as happy, however. Aaron Mason went to Zandvoort as championship leader, but lost his points advantage after placing 16th and seventh in respective races. Steve Wood, who had been second in the championship, fared even worse, finishing neither race.
