Milltek looking for ‘VW Cup Superstar’
Exhaust manufacturer Milltek is offering a fully supported drive in its VW Cup Golf for the 2014 season. The search begins Autosport 2014 and interest is therefore expected to be high.
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.
