The upcoming APR Volkswagen Racing Cup season will see the return of a fan favourite as Dave Garnsworthy will campaign the popular Caddy van racer in 2013.

The fan-friendly machine will once again be displaying its three-wheeled cornering antics after a year’s sabbatical from the series last season, having previously run with top 10 success in the hands of Peter Wyhinny and Simon Elliott since its debut in 2002.

“We are complete newbies to racing,” he added. “And the aim is to learn and have fun, take it a race at a time and make it to the finish. We’ll take it seriously and hopefully by the end of the year we might make a top 10 finish.”
