Witts sharpened for his Racing Cup debut


Production GTI Championship leader Tom Witts is to step up to the Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup for the first time this weekend (30/31 May). The Northamptonshire-based 23-year-old will be at the wheel of one of Maximum Motorsport’s Sciroccos for the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit races, and is looking forward to sampling the championship:

“It’s going to be a challenge – my first experience of the car will come the day before the event and I think we get only 55 minutes of testing,” said Tom, “but my aim for the weekend is to enjoy the experience and to take stock of the championship with a view to moving up as and when budgets permit. If you race a Volkswagen, it is definitely the championship to be in…”

Witts will take over the car raced to a podium finish at Rockingham by his Mk 2 Production GTI Championship rival Jason Tingle. Maximum Motorsport team boss and BTCC racer Stewart Lines says Tom will go well: “He has impressed me with his drives in the Golf series and Jason showed at Rockingham that the Maximum Scirocco is well on the pace, so hopefully Tom can get a good result.”

Witts leads Tingle in the Mk 2 standings by 18 points having scored three win and a second-place finish from the opening four rounds of the championship.
