Jeff Alden signs up for third VW Cup season
Always one of the first drivers to announce his intentions for the season ahead is Jeff Alden, who has confirmed his entry for the Maximum Networks Volkswagen Racing Cup for the third season in succession.
Once again, the London-based businessman will campaign his familiar green VW Golf in all of this year’s 14 rounds and intends to build on the experience gained over the past two seasons.
After spending 2018 competing in the Clio Cup, Jeff’s first VW Cup campaign in 2019 was quite a different experience, as he explains:
“Once I got to grips with the Golf and the pace of the championship, I felt a lot more confident towards the end of the season and going into 2020. As we all know, the year didn’t turn out as expected but after leading one of the races and having been in a podium position on a number of occasions in what was a reduced calendar, I hope I’ll be able to carry on from where I left off this season.
“With the first event not scheduled until the end of May and with no opportunity to get on track over the winter, I’m sure I’m not the only one who can’t wait to get started. Hopefully, this extended lead-up to the opening round will mean there’s the chance for a few tests before things get underway, so we’ll be all set and ready to go when the time finally arrives.
“I’m grateful to the sponsors who are supporting me this season and looking at the changes the organisers have made for this year’s VW Cup, it’s going to be an even better place to be – not only for the businesses involved but the drivers and teams too.”
