Trebing to Compete in Scirocco R-Cup
After two seasons of competition in the BFGoodrich/Skip Barber National presented by Mazda, nineteen year old Dennis Trebing is packing his bags and heading to Europe to compete in the 2011 Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup. After winning a scholarship in the 2009 Skip Barber Racing School Karting Scholarship Shootout, Trebing went on to compete in the 2010 Skip Barber National season. Trebing finished fourth in the championship standings with eight top-five finishes, five podiums, three wins and two pole positions. This year, he will be one of 21 drivers selected to compete in the DTM partner series, competing at eight events with ten races on legendary tracks such as Brands Hatch and Nьrburgring. Trebing will pilot a 2-liter, turbo 225 horsepower machine that reduces CO2 emissions by 80 percent, as a result of bio natural gas. During the race events, drivers will also have push-to-pass, an allotment of a 50 extra-horsepower boost to be used throughout the event.
The Florida native looks forward to representing Skip Barber Racing School in front of a European audience as 2010 produced an average of 86,000 spectators at each event. “I am very excited and proud to have raced with Skip Barber Racing School and want to thank them for all of the opportunities and experiences they have given me,” said Trebing. “I feel like I am more then prepared for the upcoming racing season in Europe with Volkswagen Motorsports in the Scirocco R-Cup!” The Scirocco R-Cup events will also be broadcasted live on the Sport 1 channel in Germany as well as 15 networks in 56 countries.
With a proven track record behind him and a full season of racing ahead, Trebing will have the help of the following sponsors: Trebing Tile, Uwe Alzen Automotive, Forch, JD Neuhaus Hoists, International Complete Wheels, Uvex, Piloti, XS Energy Sports, Cape Coral Charter Boats, and Klaus Bialon Pool Service.
