Maximum Motorsport are pleased to announce the launch of a pilot race event for a brand new series set to launch next season. The VAG Super Cup’s pilot event is set to take place on the 28th of October at Oulton Park alongside the current Maximumgroup.net VAG Trophy.


The series will run three classes, for VAG group TCR spec machinery, Seat Supercopa MK 1s’, Seat Supercopa MK 2s’ and Volkswagen Cup cars. The event will host a twenty minute qualifying as well as two twenty minute races around the 2.69 miles of Cheshire tarmac.


Stewart Lines commented; “I’m excited to see the potential of the pilot event as I believe that we could construct a successful championship for 2018 if the interest is there.”


“We feel that the three classes will provide a diverse field of old and new VAG machinery onto one grid, and act as a club level feeder to the TCR UK series kicking off in 2018”

The Maximum Motorsport Seat Leon Cup racer made its UK Time Attack debut this past weekend (01/07/17) at Japfest, hosted by Donington Park. Ex VAG Trophy racer Tom Swayne took behind the wheel of the Spanish machinery, swapping from his regular Volkswagen Golf MK 7 Cup car which he’d competed in for the first three rounds of the series.


Having not driven the Seat before the event, Swayne took no time to get used to the new apparatus. During Qualifying, Tom set the fastest lap time of the session which also broke the Time Attack lap record in class. The 20 minute final saw Tom finish the session second in class after a moment down the infamous Craner Curves which unfortunately impeded his run.


“The car is a different kettle of fish to my Golf, but after the first warm-up session I felt comfortable to start pushing to see what it was capable of. I feel I took to the car well and was happy with my performance especially having broken the lap record lap time for my class.”


“Unfortunately during the final I had a moment going down the Craner Curves which put me out of contention for the class win, but none the less I’m happy to have come away with second and fastest lap in class. I’m looking to continue the season in the Seat and hopefully collect more silverware along the way” said Tom Swayne.


“It was fantastic for Maximum Motorsport to be competing for top honours in such a respected grid as Time Attack, with a little more seat time I’m certain Tom will be on the top step of the podium by the end of the season as the Seat is a perfect car for this series.” Commented Stewart Lines, Maximum Motorsport team owner.


Tom is out next on 22nd July at Oulton Park for round 5 of the championship.
