Simon Slade appointed as championship coordinator
We are pleased to announce that Simon Slade has joined our organising team as championship coordinator. Simon takes over duties from from Nicki Lines, who will still be very much involved, dealing with entries and administration and will continue to attend all of the meetings.
A former competitor himself, Simon has been involved with motorsport for more than 40 years and possesses over 20 years experience of coordinating events and championships. During this time he has also managed numerous PR and media campaigns, having worked with drivers, teams and manufacturers at national and international level, in a variety of disciplines, including racing, rallying, Rallycross, sprinting and Time Attack.
“It’s great to be coordinating the VW Racing Cup. It’s clear it represents highly competitive, value-for-money racing. Taking these attributes into account, part of my role will be helping to develop the new Maximum Motorsport race-weekend package and ensure that both series’ enjoy the profile and status they deserve. I therefore look forward to working with teams, drivers and commercial partners during the course of the season.”
Having run the Volkswagen Racing Cup for four seasons, 2020 sees Maximum Motorsport bring the series together for seven stand-alone meetings with the Touring Car Trophy and TCR UK series’. There is also expansion into other areas, as Maximum Motorsport boss Stewart Lines explains:
“With the changes in the way we promote our meetings and having extended our motorsport commitments this year, to ensure we deliver and develop our series’ we needed to increase our resources. We’re therefore delighted to welcome Simon into the fold and look forward to what promises to be an exciting season ahead.”
