Volkswagen Motorsport’s Ameo Cup gets a National Championship recognition

-    The winners of the Ameo Cup will now be officially recognized as the Indian National Champions.

-    In its third season now, the Ameo Cup is getting recognition from the Federation of Motorsport Clubs of India (FMSCI).

Volkswagen Motorsport’s one-make championship – the Ameo Cup – has now received the status of a National Championship from the Federation of Motorsport Clubs of India (FMSCI). The newly formed class in the National Championship has been christened as Ameo Class and the winners of the Ameo Cup will now be officially recognized as Indian National Champions.

The one-make championship will continue to run in the same format as before, but after the recognition, it now carries a lot more weight. In its third year now, the Ameo cup will continue to run alongside the Madras Motor Sports Club, promoter of MRF FMSCI National Championship. The format of racing series in the Ameo Class will remain unchanged from the one-make series that have been running over the last decade. This means the participants will compete in 10 races over four race weekends, scheduled over the next five months.

The first round of the Ameo Class will be held at Kari Motor Speedway near Coimbatore. The championship will then move to Madras Motor Race Track near Chennai for the second and third round. And the final round will be held at the Formula 1 Buddh International Circuit near Greater Noida. The winner of the Pro and Junior category will be officially recognized as the National Champion of the Ameo Class Category.

Commenting on the recognition, Sirish Vissa, head of Volkswagen Motorsport India, commenting, said, “We are happy that the FMSCI has recognized the racing series we have been running over the years as a class of the National Racing Championship from this season onwards. We have put in a lot of efforts over the years in building up a racing property that is true of international standards and the recognition of being a National Championship encourages us further to take this to the next level.” 

He further added, “This is a positive step for us as a manufacturer, and the championship, as the winner, will be officially be crowned a National Champion by FMSCI. This will, in turn, help our drivers in growing further in their racing careers.”
