Classic VW and Porsche parts purveyors Heritage Parts Centre has been in touch with news that they will once again be title sponsors for the long-running Formula Vee race championship.

Powered by the trusty VW 1300sp engine, this grassroots single-seater championship is celebrating its 52nd year in the UK in 2019.

These pocket rockets also rely on Beetle front suspension and gearboxes, produce in excess of 100bhp and top 100mph on the straights, which makes for some pretty spectacular racing for both drivers and spectators alike.

Heritage CEO Barney Dines said: “Formula Vee is a real celebration of how good the air-cooled VW engine is – it’s a natural partnership for us as a company who has built a reputation supplying top quality parts for these engines, and the vehicles too.”

Pop these dates in the diary 13-14th April – Brands Hatch, 5th May Mallory Park, 15-16th June Anglesey, 6th July – Snetterton 300, 10-11th August – Silverstone, 7-8th September – Donington Park and finally 5th October at Oulton Park.
