VW drag racing in Der Renn-Kafer Cup show cars, circa 2001.
VW drag racing with street-legal, all-motor show cars. The winners were determined by a combination of show points and drag racing performance. The Der Renn-Kafer Cup idea was first conceived by some of the Orange County DKP car club members, and all of the promoters on the PRA drag racing circuit supported it. The first DRKC event was held at the now-defunct LACR drag strip, in Palmdale CA, in 1999. At one point, there were 20 or 21 Volkswagens that showed up at the Phoenix BOR, which was the biggest turnout ever for the class. Frenchy Dehoux is the man behind the microphone at the VW Classic, with "Dyno" Don Chamberlin doing the trackside duties. A couple of VW legends!
