Here's a Googled translation of the ZIRKUSPFERD article. Sorry it's in Googles trademark pigeon English.

CIRCUS HORSE
From April, 50 hot Sciroccos shall compete in circuit racing for the Junior cup.
GUTE FAHRT drove the 110 hp prototype.

No sooner were the first reports of the new VW Scirocco Cup in circulation, at the Organiser of the race (Formula V in Hanover), the phones have not stopped. Money was sent without a call, well-known racing drivers pushed forward as petitioners, sent the wife with a blank check and personal check on the movement to try their hand at one of those 50 Scirocco, which leave from April this year on their home tracks for points and prize money to each other. Hopefully not the type of Renault R5 driver who ran her first race more on the roof than on the wheels through the corners.

The fact that these races have its pitfalls, is in the tendering mode. The vehicles are technically equivalent. Also all 50 Scirocco go with the same shear power at the start. For as the basis for the Scirocco Cup, production cars are used, which are prepared with only a few uniform changes for motor sport.

Aerodynamic aids, such as front and rear spoiler, and later bolted fender flares to emphasize the sporty look of this small series Scirocco, the sporty look, designed by Broder Brodersen, the same for all competition vehicles. This also applies to the labels of different companies, which war is already a matter may be attached in what size her name on the promotional Scirocco. And because the metal surface was sufficient at the first performance for all not slip, you will probably find at the ready for use Scirocco sheer stickers hardly the car.

The interior is emphasized to the point. Matt black is the dashboard, which picks up next to the tachometer and the key to the shutdown of the entire electrical system. Oil temperature and oil pressure gauge sit in the centre console.

For the driver, a real Recaro brand bucket seat is provided, , the passenger gets a comfortable sports seat, which, like all other seats is trimmed in in a colourful stripe pattern. Of course there is not even necessary for an active use of props such as roll cage, fire extinguisher and harness belts.

The constructed that the safe chassis needed only minor retouching to make even on a good figure. This stick-shaped bends in the wheels of intensive on the ground, you have bone-hard Sachs dampers installed. To improve cornering speeds, Pirelli 195/50 15 tyres are mounted on 5 1 / 2 "ATS alloy wheels . These tyres put a lot of rubber on the road and are extremely flat, making it less comfortable.

The innately under-steering Scirocco chassis could be manipulated towards over-steer by removing the front stabilizer and fixtures at the rear a 24mm thick. With this, the Scirocco marched into the border area by the curve, as once Beetles did: perpendicular to the direction of travel. For the spectators this driving style is attractive and spectacular, and most racing drivers swear by this type of curve circumnavigation.

The necessary thrust gives the Scirocco from 1.6 litre 110 HP fuel injection engine, performs the for months in the Audi 80 GTE is serving. Essentially, the Scirocco race cars all the other performance-enhancing measures are prohibited, except for one that may bring 1 HP and is otherwise only make clear: On the exchange side is in front of the race of the silencer against a race bag which forms the exhaust gases to the infernal roar, and only thereby creating the desired atmosphere of racing.

With a power to weight ratio of 7.5 kilograms per hp accelerates the Scirocco from 0 to 80 km/h in 6.0 seconds and reaching a level of 100 after 8.8 seconds. Whether he can use his speed of 185 km / h on the racetrack often is questionable, because the translation had to be chosen in order to protect engine a little longer. Unfortunately there is for the optimal utilization of the engine revving a five gears.

With the Race-Scirocco get young driver a sports car in his hand, which will keep its perfect for everyday use and the price (15,000 Marks) for a lot more affordable.

The 50 drivers from the great group of people are now selected . It must grieve the 1150 other candidates, because in June, every VW and Audi dealer will offer the Scirocco GTI with 110 hp injection engine. Of course without the sporting war paint and without the stickers. The you can then add stickers to your own taste, after all, everyone is then his own sponsor.

Maybe Eric can put things right.

An attempt at translating the 'TEST SCIROCCO CUP' article. Again I apologise for the Googleish/Gibberish/English outcome. :blush:

Test Cup Scirocco

Today in the automotive industry, to reach huge numbers of small series suggests exclusivity. Exactly the same applies to the special series of 50 Sciroccos launched by Volkswagen . The vehicles were not on normal sale, but were intended only for the participants of the VW Junior Cup. The promotion and the selection of serving on the growth drivers, only the standard black and technically identical Cup Scirocco be translated. GUTE FAHRT tested one of these exclusive cars, that are approved for road and track.

Technically, the Scirocco Cup is significantly different from the previous series. In particular, the chassis has been specially adapted to the purpose. Overall, the car sits a few centimetres lower (improved centre of gravity distribution) and was equipped with stiffer springs.

Sachs sport shock absorbers and a stabilizer on the rear axle complete the suspension preparation.

Wide 195/50 VR 15 Pirelli tyres on ATS alloy rims (5 1 / 2 J X 15) should also contribute to the best possible handling of the car.

Indeed, the Scirocco Cup shows in fast bends down close as good natured, as in large radius curves. The contingent from the front drive under-steer was transformed into a largely neutral handling. The car does not break out, is also easy to control in the border area. Lying on what a high level of the suspension qualities of the Cup Scirocco, show trials that have been made in the Volkswagen factory. The measurements showed the peak value of 1.0g for the increased lateral acceleration. This means in practice, very high cornering speeds of fast road of sports cars like the Porsche 911 for example, can hardly be achieved.

Even the normal Scirocco can cross wind hardly impress the Cup thanks to their successful execution is even more resistant chassis revision. Although very precise steering in the direction unconverted changes, does the steering is not nervous. Even at high speeds so relaxed driving is possible, certainly a result of the excellent directional stability properties that make constant steering corrections unnecessary. The comfort, however, has suffered considerably under the chassis preparation. Short burst to benefit directly by the occupant, not a pleasure for an injured disc.

Very probably, however feel the driver and passenger in the Recaro sports seats, which gives in particular the bucket seat of the driver the necessary lateral support.

The injection engine in the Scirocco Cup can come up with 110 hp (81 kW) and is the next version for Golf and series Scirocco. Even in the cold state, the machine takes on willingly turns to gas and heating the necessary soft and vibration-free up to the speed limit of 7000 rpm. The engine has grown in all conditions, but above all to be expected with this problems, an important factor for the Cup participant. For healthy temperatures a big radiator and additional oil cooler are installed.

The acceleration of the car is impressive, especially in the lower gears (0-100 km / h in 9.1 seconds). The long fourth gear on the other hand can translate the increase in pace in more than 150 km / h to achieve the top speed will be less noticeable. It should be noted, however, that the Cup Scirocco achieved a relatively high weight by equipping them with fire extinguishers and roll bar. The top speed of 185 km / h shows that the front and rear spoilers at least bring no loss of speed.

After being without a trial designed and manufactured in the flash method, negative effects were well within the bounds of possibility.

The Cup is a total Scirocco absolutely suitable for everyday use, restrictions apply only to the comfort. Compared with tuned versions of the car but has the great advantage of direct close range, which is mainly on the cost side - is expected to be felt positive - even at the races. In addition, the Scirocco Cup was given to the participants of the VW Junior Cup for only 15.500 DM, a standard Scirocco TS already costs DM 13.000. These favourable conditions allowed, especially the kind sponsors, without whose efforts are much the price would be over 20,000 DM.

I was in error when I said I had access to an A1 colour scanner - it's only black and white.

Best I can do is an A3 size.

Sorry.

After MANY years of searching for a copy of this image, I finally tracked down an advert for Sachs that had a pic of it. So a scanning session later here for you pleasure is a high-res Junior cup cutaway pic.

Not posted on this thread for a while. I came across this video about the 2010 Scirocco Cup that had Willi Bergmesiter competing in the first race at Hockenheim. There is a very short clip of the '76 Scirocco Junior Cup race from Hockenheim about a minute into the vid.

http://www.volkswagen-motorsport.com/we ... r-cup_dt-1

It would be awesome if VW posted some vintage footage of race highligts from '76.

And here's a nice 1024x768 wallpaper of Manfred Winkelhocks Cup Rocco.
