Launched in 2000, the Volkswagen Racing Cup is the most successful manufacturer-backed saloon car championship in the UK. Open to any model of racing Volkswagen Group vehicle with a logbook, the innovative regulations put all cars into a single class based on power to weight ratios. This variety of machinery, representing Volkswagen Group vehicles of all ages has made for one of the most colourful and diverse grids in motorsport.
2020 sees continued stability of the regulations, which is a fundamental principle behind the championship. Unlike some one-make championships, cars developed for the Volkswagen Group Racing Cup can be assured of many years of racing under stable regulations. This means that teams and drivers can invest in the cost of a new car, confident in the knowledge that the car will remain eligible and its value will be retained over the years to come.
Faced with anticipated strong grids, the Volkswagen Racing Cup will be giving first priority to existing drivers and cars. Please make sure you read the regulations carefully for more information on eligibility.
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
