Wolfsburg, Zhuhai / China, 27 May 2011 - The successful one-make cup will be held in the 2011 season – for the first time under the Scirocco R-Cup name.

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 internationalization 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 program of R-Line equipment packs.”

In 2011, five races will be run in China and two 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.
