The Volkswagen Racing Cup with FUCHS Lubricants is set to go down to the wire at Silverstone on 8/9th October after the unpredictable British weather played an integral role in rounds 11 and 12 of the championship on the Donington Park Grand Prix circuit last weekend.

There was action aplenty throughout the field – at 24 cars the largest of the season – as the drivers contended with treacherous track conditions.

The 2008 and ’09 champion, Joe Fulbrook, got the best of things in Saturday’s dry qualifying session at the wheel of his Warranty Direct Racing Bora Turbo, but it was Golf men Aaron Mason and James Walker who claimed the victory laurels, denying championship leader Steve Chaplin the opportunity to settle the title fight two weeks early.

Chaplin and his ‘Herbie’-liveried Beetle RSI head for the Silverstone showdown with a 32-point lead but with points from two races up for grabs Steve has James Walker, Aaron Mason and Joe Fulbrook all in with a chance of denying him.
