If you want to watch Volkswagens performing at their limit, the Volkswagen Racing Cup is the ultimate spectacle. Volkswagen's circuit racing championship, which pits Volkswagen against Volkswagen in breath-taking battle, has gone from strength to strength.
Which sporty Volkswagen do you drive? A thrusting V6 Beetle, a torquey TDI Golf or a lightweight Lupo GTI. Whichever your Volkswagen racer of choice, your car could line up on the grid for the thrilling Volkswagen Racing Cup. Launched in 2000, this saloon car championship has quickly become known as one of the most exciting, must-see events in the UK racing calendar.

So the Cup is open to any model of racing Volkswagen and spectators can enjoy the colourful sight of a widely diverse grid which this year has attracted drivers of the Beetle RSi, the Golf VR6, Golf GTIs from Mk 1 to Mk 5, Corrado, Vento, Scirocco, Lupo, Polo and Bora. Engine usage can be just as varied, with turbocharged and even turbo diesel power joining the established 4 and 6-cylinder Volkswagen race motors.
Where else could you enjoy watching a plucky little Polo or throaty V6 Beetle take the brand new Golf GTI on a in the challenge for overall victory.
