The VW Cup Will Return To Snetterton In 2012, Whilst Also Making A Trip To Spa

 

The calendar for the 2012 Volkswagen Racing Cup has been announced, with a first ever visit to Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium the highlight of a seven event season.

The championship has been invited to Spa by Volkswagen Belgium, the sponsor of the annual 25-hour Fun Cup race, with the VW Cup will sponsor. Alongside this, the championship will have six UK-based meetings, racing alongside the DTM series at Brands Hatch in May and alongside the British F3/GT meetings at Oulton Park, Rockingham, Snetterton, Donington Park and Silverstone.

Volkswagen Racing UK Championship manager Sam Roach said: “The Volkswagen Racing Cup competitors thoroughly enjoyed their first overseas visits in 2010 and '11, to Zandvoort, and I know that they will be blown away by the opportunity to compete at the best circuit in the world at what will be a large and popular event. It's great news and a real honour for the championship to have been invited.”
