Former BTCC and WTCC racer Harry Vaulkhard will make a top flight racing return in the VW Cup with Tony Gilham’s Team HARD outfit.

Racing in the club level Mk II Golf GTi Cup last season, the 2008 Seat Cupra Class Champion will hope the Golfs allow him a good chance of victories: “The cars in the Volkswagen Racing Cup are very similar to those I raced in the SEAT series, and a bit more like a touring car than those I drove last year – my kind of car. I’ve always kept a close eye on the championship and it’s a good one, and excellent value for the competitor.

“The plan is to do well, but I am mindful of the fact that there are a lot of drivers on the grid with more experience of the series than me, so it is not going to be easy.”

The entry will be backed by Prestige Performance Centre (PPCGB) who will also be putting out a car for HARD regular Howard Fuller.

Fuller burst onto the VW Cup scene in 2010 as a keen 17-year-old taking class victories along the way before taking a season in single seaters until he moved back in to Volkswagens in 2012.

Championship Manager Matt Walker added: “Prestige Performance Centre was a solid and enthusiastic supporter of the Volkswagen Racing Cup throughout last season and we are pleased that the association is to continue through 2014. They have picked a pair of really exciting drivers to represent them and both are going to be among the men to watch this season.”
