Volkswagen Motorsport enters its 9th year in India. With the new Ameo made especially for India in India, we also introduced the Ameo Cup. Like always we will have 20 drivers on board for the season that will not only race but also be trained to become professional race drivers.
The key goal for us is to groom India’s next international racing star. Our elementary level racing series provides a platform for young racers to demonstrate their talent and capabilities in equally prepared cars.
We provide a unique platform where all the cars are built, serviced and run by us at Volkswagen Motorsport India. This ensures parity in terms of performance of all the cars and allows a driver’s driving skill to shine through. The new Ameo Cup car is more advanced in terms of electronics, chassis and powertrain, which makes it more on par with the international race cars.
The Ameo Cup Cars give the drivers a better platform to learn and hone their skills, and make the right step towards an international touring career.
The race program comprises of 4 race weekends in 3 destinations across India- Coimbatore, Chennai and Delhi. The winner of our championship is given an opportunity to show case his or her talent in a higher level formula series in India, and internationally through our driver exchange program.
The added benefit of our motorsport program is that it helps to showcase the qualities that set Volkswagen apart. Motorsport not only demonstrates our build quality, reliability, safety and excellent driving dynamics, but also is a platform we use to improve our cars.
In the last 8 years, Volkswagen Motorsport India has become the benchmark for quality and reliability of cars and the training that it imparts to young drivers in India.
Being a ‘One-Make-Championship’ all participating cars are technically identical with the same performance specifications making it possible for only the most skilled drivers to leave an impact.
The renowned car racing series has been able to put a lot of emerging talent on the global map by training and exposing the young drivers with the latest technological advancements for higher racing categories.
