In the next days and weeks you may notice references to a VW Jetta TDI Cup series in various places on our Web site. Under an agreement with Volkswagen of America, we’ve created this as a training tool for the drivers who are registered for the 2009 edition of this entry-level real-world professional green racing series. Eligibility for this series is limited to these individuals, but in the next few weeks we’ll be making a related announcement with Volkswagen that will be of interest to all iRacers. (Many of you know Josh Hurley, a successful iRacer who was also the 2008 Jetta TDI Cup champion, and has been a big iRacing booster.)

Coole Sache. Der Jetta TDI Cup ist seit letztem Jahr eine der Tourenwagen Nachwuchsserien in den USA, so wie es hier hier den Polo Cup, Lupo Cup etc. gab und gibt. Es ist zwar etwas verwunderlich, dass iRacing diese nun umsetzt, aber es freut mich trotzdem sehr eines unserer Wolfsburger Fahrzeuge in iRacing zusehen. :]

April 25,2009 - Volkswagen of America and iRacing Announce Internet-Racing Path to Real-World Pro Series: iRacers To Qualify for Jetta TDI Cup Driver Selections
Since before the service opened to the public last year, professional and amateur real-world racing drivers, including last year’s Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup champion, Josh Hurley, have been using iRacing.com’s motorsport simulation service to learn new tracks and get up to speed before testing sessions or races. Today, a partnership between Volkswagen of America and iRacing has been announced, which will see an iRacing-organized internet racing series serve as a portal to the real-world Jetta TDI Cup series.

iRacing’s virtual Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup series will kick off during 2009 Season 3. The online series will be open to all members with a Rookie 4.0 or higher competition license and will feature the Jetta TDI Cup car (which is currently under development) as well as several of the tracks from the real-world TDI Cup schedule.

At the conclusion of Season 3, the top ranked driver in the series meeting Jetta TDI Cup entrance requirements (between the ages of 16-26 and a resident of the United States, Canada or Mexico) will earn a spot among 100 aspiring professional racers invited by Volkswagen of America to compete in the Driver Selection event for the real-world 2010 Jetta TDI Cup series. From those 100, 30 series entrants and five alternates will be selected. Should the virtual Jetta TDI Cup qualifier be among them, he or she will enjoy a FULLY FUNDED season behind the wheel of the iRacing.com-liveried Jetta TDI Cup entry.

Next year, iRacing becomes even more central to the Jetta TDI Cup driver selection process. The virtual Jetta TDI Cup series for 2009 Season 4 and 2010 Seasons 1 – 3 will be the primary gateway to the Driver Selections event. Top-ranked iRacers from all four seasons will receive invitations to attempt to qualify for the real-world series’ 2011 season and compete for the $100,000 champion’s prize.

Complete program details will be published in the near future. To learn more about how iRacing and Volkswagen can help you make it to the pros, please click here.

Ich finde seriennahe Tourenwagen auch cool. Davon abgesehen kann man so mal nen VW ohne Stress schrotten. Ich mag halt vw -> am liebsten frisch gepresst!

*g*

Nein, mal im Ernst. Mir sind Tourenwagen allgemein wesentlich lieber als Open Wheeler!

Der eigentliche Knaller hinter der Meldung ist, dass wohl zum ersten Mal eine Sim offiziell zum Training und Scouting genutzt wird.

Der Jetta-Cup ist eine Rennfahrerschule ähnlich unserem Polo-Cup, in dem alle Fahrer mehr oder weniger von VW gefördert und ausgebildet werden, die zwar Rennen gegeneinander fahren, aber gemeinsam die Schulbank in der Theorie drücken. Dass hier nun ein Sim ernsthaft zu Auswahl- und Ausbildungszwecken genutzt wird, ist meines Wissens nach ein Novum :)
