Editor Elliott has recently made the financially-fatal mistake of getting his 7-year old son in to karting, so when he asked us to put this news story in about his local circuit Buckmore Park’s Marketing Assistant, Chris Bridle, competing in the VW FunCup this season for Team 7 we thought, ah, someone’s getting a cheeky discount on his track time… But no, as it turns out, Ell’s just nice sometimes!

They might look like old air-cooled bugs, but with 140bhp 1.8-litre NA VAG lumps, sequential ‘boxes and kerb weights of around 850kg, not to mention grids of 35 and the four to eight-hour endurance format of each race, the FunCup series is known for producing some top quality motorsport at circuits across the UK. Last season Chris and brother had podiums at Brands Hatch and Silverstone and narrowly missed out on the championship, so this year they’re going in all guns blazing to try and top that. Best of luck to Team 7 from Team PVW!
