2010 VW Jetta TDI Cup Schedule Announced

After it recently announced the broadcast schedule for the 2009 season, German carmaker Volkswagen launched the race schedule for next year’s SCCA Pro Racing Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup season, which includes six of the circuits from the 2009 schedule and the series’ first visit to Mexico.

“In building the 2010 schedule, we have been able to achieve a great mix of historic tracks and newer facilities in excellent geographic markets in North America,” said Clark Campbell, motorsport manager at Volkswagen of America, in a release.

“During the first two seasons of our series, we have clearly demonstrated the benefits of Volkswagen’s clean diesel TDI technology, and we’re looking forward to an exciting 2010 season,” Campbell added.

The Jetta TDI Cup car is powered by a 2.0-liter, 170 hp, four-cylinder TDI clean diesel engine mated to a six-speed, double-clutch, automatic DSG transmission.

The car is only slightly modified from stock, as it now has Pirelli racing tires, race suspension and brake components, drivers racing safety seat, FIA roll cage and an on-board fire extinguisher system.
