The ethos for the new series is very similar to that of the 'Original' VAG Trophy setup by John Hillon, with the exception being that there is a cut off date for this new series of cars that were in production pre-2003. The rationale for this is that the majority of the post-2003 cars have inherently better handling potential than the older beam rear axle cars and these newer cars already have the option of running in VW Cup and the Maximum Group.net VAG Trophy.

The New series is split into 3 classes, with class A & B having the same basic regs, outline details are as follows:-

Class A
VR6 engined cars and single make race series cars (e.g. Seat Leon Cup, Vento Challenge, Beetle Cup & Toledo Cupra R)
Tyres are open and slick tyres are permitted with exception of qualifying or super soft compounds.
NA cars are allowed a max power to weight at the wheels of 200bhp/ton.
Forced induction cars are allowed a max power to weight at the wheels of 184bhp/ton.
Throttle bodies are allowed on NA engines.
Limited Slip Differentials are allowed with no weight penalty.


Class B
NA engine cars upto 2ltr (8v & 16v), std turbo 1.8T transplant cars and 1.8T engined Mk4 cars built to Mk4 GTI/TDI challenge spec.
Tyres are open and slick tyres are permitted with exception of qualifying or super soft compounds.
NA cars are allowed a max power to weight at the wheels of 200bhp/ton.
Forced induction cars are allowed a max power to weight at the wheels of 184bhp/ton.
Throttle bodies are allowed on NA engines.
Limited Slip Differentials are allowed with no weight penalty.
Mk4 cars built to Mk4 Challence spec are allowed to run 220bhp and a base weight of 1200kg.


Class C
Less modified cars and road going race cars.
Tyre brand is open, but must be from MSA List 1B.
NA cars are allowed a max power to weight at the wheels of 154bhp/ton.
Forced induction cars are allowed a max power to weight at the wheels of 144bhp/ton.
Std injection or carbs only are allowed.


Please note that the above info has been taken from the DRAFT series regulations and may be subject to change until officially released.


The series itself will be running alongside the Classic Touring Car Race Series and specifically we will be sharing the grid with the New pre-2003 class initially until the grid sizes dictate us having our own grid.

The series is being sponsored by Cambridge Business Travel Ltd (who also sponsor a car in the BTCC) and Super Pro.

If anyone would like any further information please feel free to either contact myself or Ian Fowler (vwracer52), we will also be on the CTCRC stand at the Race Retro show @ Stoneleigh on 20-22 Feb (http://www.raceretro.com/) if anyone would like to stop by and say hi and have a chat about anything.

To keep up to date with all the latest information and gossip about what type of cars you're likely to see on the grid feel free to swing by the series's Facebook page - https://www.facebook...ssicVWchallenge
