The Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup is proud to announce its 2018 season plans seeing the series incorporate a second class, allowing lower spec and older Volkswagen group cars onto the grid for 2018. The championship will remain on the infamous British GT package but will also branch off to support the new and exciting TCR UK series on an extended 8 meeting calendar.


The series opens at the home of British Motorsport as the championship returns to Silverstone on the national configuration of the circuit, paired with the TCR UK series and their inaugural meeting. The series then heads to Corby to join with the British GT championship on the challenging banked turns, before continuing with the GT’s to Snetterton for round five and six of the championship.


Brands Hatch is next on the calendar as the series heads to Kent before taking a trip overseas with the return of the famous Spa Francorchamps rounds accompanying the British GT once more. The championship is set to then recouple with TCR UK as it heads to Oulton Park and Croft before the season concludes at Donington Park back with the GT’s.


For 2018 the Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup for the first time will incorporate a second class onto its grid in the form of a field of lower spec Volkswagen group cars, running a control tread tyre, similar to class B cars in the series’ sister championship, the Maximumgroup.net VAG Trophy, which is set to merge with the Volkswagen Cup in 2018. This class will have a separate points system and will be grid separate to the main field, bringing some diverse cars and close racing to the package.


The Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup is also set to boast a brand new prize for 2018, that being a dedicated test in a Seat Cupra TCR car courtesy of Maximum Motorsport, allowing young talent an opportunity to sample TCR machinery as they assess their plans to progress their Motorsport careers.


“I’m very pleased with our 2018 calendar and look forward to supporting the TCR UK series in its inaugural season, incorporating the class B cars onto the VW grid will place that field on a very high profile package which they wouldn’t have access to elsewhere. I think we’ve created a fantastic package for 2018 and I’m excited to see the young talent that will grace the field fighting for the TCR test prize” commented Stewart Lines, series director.
