Scirocco R-Cup: Captivating final showdown between three rivals

Start of the Scirocco-R Cup at Oschersleben

The Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup is in for a fiery finale at the Hockenheimring on 15 and 16 October.

To be decided at the event: the champion of the inaugural season of the world’s most eco-conscious one-make cup. The three candidates: Kris Heidorn (Germany, 296 points), Jann-Hendrik Ubben (Germany, 277) and the 2009 Polo Cup winner, Maciek Steinhof (Poland, 276). Just 20 points separate the contenders for the title before the last of nine races of the season – 60 points will be awarded for victory. Their aim: to go down in history as the first champion of the new bio natural gas one-make cup. The final showdown will receive an additional element of suspense by the innovative push-to-pass system that allows each driver to activate a 10-second 50-hp power boost 15 times during the race.

Jetta TDI Cup: Andrew Cordeiro’s race report from New Jersey Motorsport Park

oneighturbo, Andrew Cordeiro, Jetta TDI Cup

Susperstitions are just that! Third time wasn’t a charm.

The past two seasons of Jetta TDI Cup have resulted in a rained-out weekend for New Jersey Motorsport Park. They had also concluded with somehow-someway, my car being put into the wall. We as racers have our own sort-of “racing religion”. No green paint on cars, don’t bring peanuts to the track, stepping on spiders makes it rain. These superstitions are interesting, how did they come to be? Third times a charm right? Well thankfully not! Otherwise I would have smoked the wall, again. That being said, I wouldn’t have minded the rain, these Jetta’s handle amazingly well in the rain and are very fun to pilot. Perhaps I should have stepped on a spider? (continue reading…)
