Fuchs Lubricants has signed up to remain as the title sponsor of the Volkswagen Racing Cup for another season, after a successful first year in partnership in 2010.

Fuchs Lubricants UK marketing manager Richard Barrett said: “We enjoyed a great first season with the Volkswagen Racing Cup and continue to be thrilled to be title sponsor of such a competitive high calibre series. Our premium Titan Race range has been developed significantly through our links with top level motorsport. This ongoing development process ensures FUCHS customers continue to enjoy maximum performance and protection on the road and on the track.”

Championship director Melissa Wright added: “We are delighted that Fuchs Lubricants remains a partner of the Volkswagen Racing Cup for 2011. It has been a good association and a popular one with competitors.”

The VW Racing Cup is set for another strong season in 2011, with a regular slot alongside the British GT Championship. It will support the series at six UK rounds, as well as returning to Zandvoort in the Netherlands in July.

Wright added: “The championship enjoyed an average grid of 25 cars in 2010, and we have every expectation that this figure will grow in the coming season. Many of last year's competitors are returning, and there will be an influx also of novices, underling the championship's reputation as a great place to begin a racing career.”
