Circuit Racing


Volkswagen's of various models have also been used in circuit racing over the years.  At the same time as Porsche Salzburg were running the 1302S and 1303S cars in rallying, a few tuning companies were running Beetles in circuit racing.  These tuners managed to get a similar 120bhp from the 1600 engine, so there must have been some common ideas floating around the tuning scene at the time.

Even today, there are various air-cooled Volkswagens still racing around the circuits of the world, whether it be in the single-make championships like the various Beetle Cups, or in the thick of the action with other makes and models.
