DW Racing’s Josh Coggan took his second Volkswagen Racing Cup victory of the year, at a scorching Croft circuit. The Nottinghamshire driver would hold off polesitter Simon Walton throughout an enticing opening race.
The Volkswagen Racing Cup makes its annual trip to Croft a few months earlier this year, as the Maximum Motorsport run event sets down in Yorkshire for their fifth round of the season. Ex-BTCC star Martin Depper leads the standings, but with six winners from the first eight races, everything’s still to play for.
As the drizzle started at Donington Park, the VW Racing Cup took to the track as Rob Allum narrowly beat Martin Depper after a race long battle between the pair. It is the Allumy Motorsport drivers first win of the year in the Volkswagen Golf.
Mark Wakefield took his second Volkswagen Racing Cup victory of the year benefitting from a mistake by polesitter Josh Coggan while leading at Donington Park. The Golf, run by Mark Wakefield Racing with HSG Sport, tasted victory last round as well as moves within touching distance of the points lead.
Josh Coggan was unbeatable in the Donington Park sun, taking pole position for the DW Racing team. After a dismal Silverstone for the young star, Coggan was quick to prove he could be a front runner with all ballast removed, setting a best time 1min 42.926, 0.499 seconds ahead of the opposition.
A double father-son podium headlined the second Volkswagen Cup Silverstone race, as Martin Depper took the flag, with his son Jack securing his first Hankook Trophy.
A spectacular first win of the season for Mark Wakefield was an incredible achievement for a driver that almost didn’t start the last round at Snetterton due to technical issues. The Mark Wakefield Racing with HSG Sport driver hit back with a vengeance at Silverstone, jumping from ninth on the grid.
A first pole of the season for Josh Coggan gives the DW Racing driver equal lead of the Volkswagen Racing Cup standings, as the two points put him level with Martin Depper. Coggan, who won last time out as Snetterton will look to take control of the championship here at Silverstone, the longest circuit of the year, producing a pole time of 2min 42.182.
