Two-Time Champion Fulbrook Returns To VW Racing Cup

1 Mins read

The APR Volkswagen Racing Cup grid will be welcoming back it’s double champion Joe Fulbrook as he endeavors to become the ‘winningest driver’ – a title currently held by Paul Taylor.

Fulbrook returns in the turbocharged Bora he raced for the last seven seasons and only needs two more victories to match record-holder Taylor.

Driving under the Warranty Direct AWM banner he will be joined by Simon Andrews in a Golf GTI and Robin Riley in a Beetle RSI.

“It has been a right old rush, and we are not 100 per cent ready yet,” says Fulbrook. “My sponsors Scorpion, Forge and Warranty Direct have been great, as have RP Motorsports – Russ Preston and Greg Nelson – and ST Engineering's Tiny Townsend. Without them we would never be able to compete.

“It will be good once again having Robin Riley and Simon Andrews in the team; I am sure Simon is going to get a result sooner rather than later; he has shown massive pace in testing. Robin is keen to get one of the only normally aspirated cars this year further up the grid.

“With so many professional entries it is going to more competitive than ever – but that's the challenge.”

Fulbrook and Warranty Direct Racing team will again work closely with Aaron Mason’s AWM Motorsport team.
