Gallery: The Beetle Fun Cup Comes to America

A disproportionate number of professional racers were in Florida this weekend, but not all of them for the 24 Hours at Daytona. Some were quite a bit farther south in Miami for the Beetle Fun Cup, which came to the States for the first time ever.

The Beetle Fun Cup is a European race series that uses fiberglass bodied race cars powered by a Volkswagen Motorsport inline four placed in the middle of a tubular chassis, powering the back wheels. The purpose-built race cars are designed to be cheap(ish), reliable, accessible, and most importantly fun.

There are a few series in Europe, but the French one decided to organize a trip to Miami for a weekend of racing on American soil. And just for kicks, Tanner Foust and Scott Speed, who race Beetles anyway, decided to join in the fun.

We’ll have full coverage of the race why it was so much fun later in the week, but for now enjoy a gallery of racing prepped Beetle making their way around Homestead-Miami Speedway.
