Milltek Sport exhaust helps team to win Vokswagen Racing Cup
Paul Taylor is the 2006 Volkswagen Racing Cup champion. The 41-year-old from Hertfordshire claimed the title at Thruxton this weekend despite being denied season-closing victories at the wheel of his four-wheel-drive Golf R32 - fitted with a full Milltek Sport exhaust system.
A fourth-place finish on Saturday 30th September and seventh in the final round on Sunday the 1st October was enough for Taylor to finish the job he started with a win at Oulton Park in April, and Paul was delighted: 'It's a great feeling. As with all motor racing, there have been ups and downs throughout the season. It's fantastic to have got the job done.'
After his Oulton success, further victories followed for Taylor at Donington Park and Snetterton, which he capped with twin wins at Silverstone a week ago to bring his victory tally to five from 12 races. He also claimed a brace of second place finishes at Brands Hatch.
Backing from Taylor's Heating, Alpha Boilers, Revo Technik, Big Boys Toys, and Milltek Sport helped put Paul on the top step of the championship podium.
He plans to return to the series in 2007 to defend his title. 'I have every intention of coming back to have another go, even though the competition is getting tougher all the time.'
Taylor started racing in karts at age eight and, after a spell in rallying, turned to saloon car racing in 1999. He was the Stock Hatch champion in 2003.
