Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup confirms Brands Hatch return

Friday, February 04 2011

The Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup will make its second Brands Hatch appearance this September, after the series confirmed it will support the DTM German Touring Car Championship in 2011.

The one make series, which features bio natural gas fuelled VW Scirrocos, joined the DTM bill in 2010 and provided some highly entertaining racing during its Brands Hatch debut. Four Grand Prix legends - Martin Brundle, Johnny Herbert, Mark Blundell and Derek Bell - were among the line-up during the series' only UK round, and Blundell scooped a sensational podium finish behind winner Kris Heidorn and second place Jann-Hendrik Ubben.

In 2011, the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup will feature a packed grid of 29 regular drivers, including eight female racers, plus special guest competitors at each event. The equality of machinery will ensure close racing, and once again each car will feature a push-to-pass system to encourage increased overtaking.

Discounted advance tickets for DTM Brands Hatch on 2/3/4 September are available from £25 for adults, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click on the link below.
