Next year's Volkswagen Racing Cup with Fuchs Lubricants is to set to be the series' biggest to date as its organisers releases its provisional 2011 calendar. Building on its success this year, the season will consist of 14 races across the UK and abroad.

The championship will line up alongside the British GT Championship at six of its UK dates, as well as returning to Zandvoort in the Netherlands for a special summer event.

“This year, the championship's 10th anniversary, was its strongest yet,” said series manager Melissa Wright. “The Volkswagen Racing Cup average grid size was 25 cars, and we know from advance enquiries that we are very likely to exceed that figure in 2011.

“The continued stability of the excellent regulations and a good calendar are key to the championship's success, and we are delighted to have been invited to return to Zandvoort, the venue this season for our first overseas foray. Competitors will also welcome the chance to race the new Snetterton '300' circuit, as well as the 'Arena' track at Silverstone.”

Fans of the series will get their first taste of the series at the 2011 Autosport International show at Birmingham's NEC on 15-16 January, with cars from the series featuring in the Live Action Arena shows.
