VOLKSWAGEN RACING CUP DRIVER
Milltek Sport's involvement with Volkwagen Racing and Lucas Orrock
Milltek Sport is the principle sponsor of the 2015 championship and provides racing exhaust/catalyst solutions to most Volkswagen Racing teams. This has a mutual benefit to not only Milltek and the racing teams but also anyone who purchases a Milltek exhaust for their road car.
On top of sponsoring the entire racing series, Milltek Sport has a history of giving financial and technical backing to one of the competitors - this year the chosen driver is Lucas Orrock in his VW Scirocco race car.It was his fighting spirit and singular focus on winning that drew Milltek's attention to him
Lucas made his debut in the Volkswagen Racing Cup in 2014 and was in the championship title race right up until the final corner of the last race of the season - not bad for a rookie! It was his fighting spirit and singular focus on winning that drew Milltek's attention to him and it's also opened other racing doors for him. Milltek Sport also sponsor him as part of their 24H Series racing team in their Endurance VW Golf racer. Through the endurance racing programme, Lucas has driven with the likes of British Touring Car legend Matt Neal. Milltek Sport drafted in Matt Neal for the Mugello round of the 24hr series, and together with Lucas they didnâ€™t disappoint: scoring a podium 2nd place finish against tough opposition. Lucas and Matt set nearly identical fastest event times, showing they were a formidable combination.
Lucas also supports us at track events and helps with testing of new exhausts to the limit to ensure they are ready for the anything customers can throw at them.
Lucas Commenting on his relationship with Milltek Sport:
I have a deep rooted passion and love for Motorsport, and all things that go fast. When I first met with the Milltek team and viewed the Milltek factory and premises I could tell that everyone at Milltek shares that same passion, their drive to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible with their products is truly inspiring.
Milltek has always taken an active role in Motorsport because racing provides the ultimate test-bed for its products.
Milltek knows that a true motorsport exhaust must offer exceptional durability, remain reliable race-after-race, satisfy race circuit drive-by noise regulations, and yet still provide enough performance to win a championship.
The information that feeds back from racing teams helps to make not only the racing exhausts better but also alters the way Milltek make all their products.
When you buy a Milltek exhaust, you know it's good enough to win, time and time again!
