Both the season opener and finale will again be held at Hockenheim, and new to the 2011 calendar is the Red-Bull-Ring at Spielberg, Austria.
Between April and October, there will be rounds across Germany at the EuroSpeedway, the Norisring, Nürburgring and Oschersleben, as well as a return to Brands Hatch in the UK. The paddock will include both male and female racers from eight different countries and, once again, motorsport legends and celebrities will complete the grid as guest entrants at each round. The eco-friendly Volkswagen one-make Cup reduces CO2 emissions by 80% compared to gasoline-pwered cars with the use of cars fuelled by bio natural gas. The 2011 season will again support the German DTM calendar, encompassing eight out of the 10 German touring car championship events.
As a DTM partner series, the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup will continue to perform on a grand stage. It will also continue to allow fans to come close to the action and deliver thrilling races. 2010 saw an average of 86,000 spectators flock to the jointly held races. The grid of identical Scirocco coupés guarantees absolute equality among the entrants. A push-to-pass system offers a limited number of 50hp power boosts at the driver’s fingertips, to guarantee exciting racing. Furthermore, the combination of young drivers, seasoned campaigners and legends of motorsport in the same race adds to the action.
