The 2011 Volkswagen R one-make race known as Scirocco R-Cup will be held in China and Malaysia. There will be 5 races in China and follow by 2 races in Malaysia. The R product brand will be the focus of activities surrounding the motorsport events. For example, a vehicle exhibition showcasing the road models of Volkswagen R GmbH will be a regular feature at races in the series.
Since 2010, Volkswagen R GmbH – as producer of the Scirocco R – has been sponsoring the Scirocco R-Cup in the framework of the DTM race series in Europe. Now the company is extending its sponsorship to the core market of China.
Ulrich Riestenpatt gt. Richter, General Manager of Volkswagen R GmbH on the company’s involvement: For Volkswagen R GmbH, the Scirocco R-Cup in China is a very good platform for supporting our own internationalisation strategy. We will soon also have a presence in the key Chinese market with our successful Golf R and Scirocco R models. In addition, we will be progressively expanding our programme of R-Line equipment packs.
