Promising plans for the VW Fun Cup powered by Hankook in 2020... and in 2021!

White smoke for the VW Fun Cup powered by Hankook! After weeks of mature reflection, a new attractive calendar is proposed for the 2020 season, adapted to the current circumstances (political and economic) related to the coronavirus crisis.



Moreover, the organizer and promoter Kronos Events has already sketched out the first plans for the next season. 




Now that the recovery of motorsport in our regions finally seems clearer, the long-awaited moment has come to unveil the new plans for this year's 2020 VW Fun Cup powered by Hankook. As it will probably be possible to compete from August onwards, the season, which will consist of five races, will open on the fourth weekend of this summer month at Circuit Zolder, with the Zolder Fun Festival.




The long-awaited Benelux Open Races meeting at the renovated F1 circuit in Zandvoort will also take place on the originally planned date. After that we head for France for the Trophée d'Alsace on a circuit that is so much appreciated by the VW Fun Cup fans. The Ring of the Rhine will indeed make its great return and will welcome the Funs on October 2nd and 3rd for an 8 hours race which will end at night!
 


Then, the Racing Beetles will go to the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps on October 29th and 30th, for a joint meeting with the BGDC and the 2CV, and a sporting joust of... 12h30 (a ½ 25h!). The season will close with an exotic trip to the Algarve, in collaboration with our friends from the French Fun Cup. With the nice and fast circuit of Portimão, it's a brand new destination that's added to the agenda!
 



And what about the 25 Hours?
 



"Given the difficult and uncertain situation linked to the Covid 19 pandemic, it was impossible to organise the Hankook 25 Hours VW Fun Cup in the conditions that we, but also and above all the teams, drivers and partners, love", explains Marc Van Dalen, CEO of Kronos Events.



"This flagship event must be the best moment of our calendar, a real summer party with more than 550 drivers and 500 co-drivers of almost thirty different nationalities on the starting grid. We had no guarantee that we would be able to put this meeting in place under these good conditions, which are essential to its success.




That's why we decided not to organise it this year. But beware, it will be back in force as of next year, when we are already looking forward to seeing all the fans of the world's longest race on 8, 9, 10 and 11 July 2021 for a real popular motor sport festival, which will be more magnificent than ever! »
 




Joker in 2020, "super champions" in 2021
 



The results of an opinion survey of teams and pilots were taken into account in the development of the schedule. In order to make participation in the 2020 season financially accessible, it was decided to introduce a joker race, valid for the last appointment. In other words, an absence from this race can be entered as a draw. For the 2021 season, the most fun of the motorsport disciplines will then revert to the traditional rule, with only the worst result, not an absence, being taken away.
 


Still on the basis of the survey results, advanced work is already underway on the 2021 calendar, which we already know will consist of four events, in addition to the famous Hankook 25 Hours VW Fun Cup.
 


Icing on the cake, Kronos Events offers an exciting challenge to the regular participants of the VW Fun Cup powered by Hankook: after the two seasons (2020 and 2021), where the champions will of course be crowned annually, Kronos Events will reward "Supers Champions" based on an addition of the final results of the 2020 and 2021 Championships combined. Isn't this a golden and above all unique opportunity not to be missed?
