For the first time in european car Tuner GP history, we are running a single make and model competition. A field of Volkswagen Golfs will face off against each other allowing tuners to compete head-to-head on the same platform. All variations of the Golf from GTI, Golf R, R32 or even a Rallye Golf will be allowed to compete.

All competitors will be street driven tuner cars, no dedicated racecars. The competition is open to 2 and 4-door cars, full interiors, back seats and all interior pieces in place, including the cargo area. The front seats can be changed to racing seats if desired, but the car must still have two front seats. Any rollover protection, body-stiffening/bracing must be bolted-in.

Updating or backdating is allowed, as long as it was offered in a production Golf. The engine must remain in the factory location. Big turbos, multiple turbos, supercharging is all allowed. The car must be streetable and “street legal” meaning aftermarket downpipes are allowed, as along as the car is it is still equipped with a functioning catalytic convertor. Use of nitrous oxide is not allowed.

Any bolt on suspension modification is allowed. The modification of subframes is allowed, as long as the suspension type is still the same what was offered by the factory; i.e. all cars will have MacPherson Strut front suspension, although switching from a torsion beam to multi-link rear is allowed.

Aerodynamic modifications are allowed, but the car must be able to clear a speed bump. Braking modifications are allowed as long as they are deemed safe and reliable.
