Volkswagen Ameo Cup 2017

Volkswagen Motorsport is entering its 8th year in India. With the new Ameo in market which is specially made for India in India we are launching the Ameo Cup. Like always we will have 20 drivers on board for the season that will not only race but also be train to become better race drivers.


The key goal for us is to groom India’s next international racing star. Our grass root level racing series we provide a platform for young racers to demonstrate their talent and capabilities in equally prepared cars. We provide a unique platform where all the cars are built serviced and run by us at Volkswagen Motorsport India. This ensures parity in terms of performance of all the cars and allows a driver’s talent to shine through. The new Ameo Cup car is more advanced in terms of electronics, chassis and powertrain, which makes it more on par with the international race cars. The Ameo Cup Cars give the drivers a better platform to learn and hone their skills, and make the step into an international touring car much smaller.


The race program comprises of 4 race weekends in 3 destinations across India- Coimbatore, Chennai and Delhi. The winner of our championship is given an opportunity to show case his or her talent in a higher level formula series in India, and internationally through our driver exchange program.


The added benefit of our motorsport program is that it helps to showcase the qualities that set Volkswagen apart. Motorsport not only demonstrates our build quality, reliability, safety and excellent driving dynamics, but also is a platform we use to improve our cars.


Volkswagen Motorsport India over the past seven years has become the standard bearer for the quality and reliability of cars and the training that it imparts to young drivers in India. Being a ‘One-Make-Championship’ all participating cars are technically identical with the same performance making it possible for only the most skilled drivers to leave an impact. The renowned car racing series has been able to put a lot of emerging talent on the global map by training and exposing the young drivers with the latest technological advancements for higher racing categories.
