Milltek Searches For VW Cup Superstar
Respected exhaust manufacturer Milltek is offering a very hot ticket to one talented race driver – a fully supported drive in their impressive VW Cup Golf for the 2014 season. Launching the search at the 2014 Autosport show between the 9th and 12th January, expect interest to be very high!
Having been involved in motorsport at all levels for many years, from the grass roots of club motorsport in the SuperPro VAG trophy and Golf GTi Championship, through to winning the UK Time Attack Club AWD title and even up to providing technical support in the BTCC, Milltek has now teamed up with long-term technical partners KPM to create a weapon to campaign in the APR VW Cup. Based on the company’s previously successful Golf Time Attack car, KPM has used the off-season to completely re-prepare the car to VW Cup spec, ready to fight it out at the front of the pack.
Milltek will be hosting a test day – on a date to be announced in February – in order to allow potential candidates to come and drive the car and be interviewed and assessed by a crack team of experts, led by BTCC ace, Milltek ambassador and MSA Driving Coach, Tom Onslow-Cole. Being fast is essential, obviously, but the judges will also be looking for fitness, personality, attitude and aptitude in order to hire a true ‘all round’ talent who’s as happy in front of sponsors and media as they are on the front line of the grid.
The package being offered includes full preparation and support, a pit crew, the car, and a full spares package, meaning that the lucky incumbent will only need to cover their tyres and damage for the 2014 season, making it a hugely cost-effective way for them to step onto a high-profile motorsport stage, with a proven, winning team behind them.
Commenting on this exciting development, Milltek’s managing director Steve Pound said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for a new talent to emerge and race at a very high level with very little cost on their part. We will provide the car, and everyone and almost everything to run it, with a team that has worked up to the very highest level of tin-top motorsport. KPM will no doubt create a car that is ‘front row’ ready, so it’s a real chance for someone to stamp their authority in a high-profile championship and really kick-start their motorsport career.”
The VW Cup starts on the 21st April at Oulton Park
