The Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup is back and is stronger than ever for 2016!
Launched in 2000, (so celebrating it’s sixteenth anniversary next year), the VW Cup is widely regarded as the most exciting saloon car championship in the UK. For 2016, we will be yet again the only saloon support race in the prestigious British GT Championship package.
The good news is that we are expecting 2016 to be the most successful year in the Championship’s history. We’ve got an exciting new-look for the cars and a continuation of our terrific title-sponsor in Milltek Sport. There are new cars in-build, new teams and new drivers joining us, from novices to Touring Car drivers. We expect to have full grids all year, making the Milltek VW Racing Cup by far the most successful manufacturer-backed race championship in the UK.
