Volkswagen Motorsport India has opened registrations for the selection round of the upcoming 2019 edition of the Ameo Cup.
The applicants’ skills will be put to the test at the selection round that will take place at the Indi Karting Track in Kharadi, Pune, and drivers will be shortlisted based on their performance in the karting sessions. They will be judged on their overall driving skills, including consistency in performance, understanding of racing lines, lap times, driving attitude and versatility. The dates for the selection round will be announced later, with February 3 being the last date to register for it.
This year will mark the 10th edition of Volkswagen Motorsport India’s one-make touring race car series and the third edition of the Ameo Cup Series. To be hosted as part of the MMSC-FMSCI Indian National Racing Championship, the Ameo Cup races will be held at three circuits across India – MMRT in Chennai, Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore and the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida.
The format for this year will remain unchanged, with a grid of 20 drivers in equally prepared machines competing in 10 races across the year.
“2019 is a special year for Volkswagen Motorsport in India. We are entering our 10th year and looking back, I feel a sense of pride in the journey that we have covered, be it in terms of the progress we have made in infrastructure to the work we have done in raising awareness about motorsport in the country and supporting amateur and seasoned talent alike. We have had some great races last season and I look forward to another year of superb talent and racing season,” said Sirish Vissa, head of Volkswagen Motorsport India.
