What little boy doesn't dream of growing up to be a race driver of panel vans?

Well, here's some good news for those little dreamers. The VW Caddy will be back this season to race in the Volkswagen Racing Cup.

The Caddy van will be back for its fifth season in the Volkswagen Racing Cup, a UK racing circuit, and its main driver will be none other than Peter Wyhinny, who also works for VW Group as the head of its SEAT division in the UK. The guy certainly has quite a portfolio of responsibilities as a VW Group employee.

The Volkswagen Racing Cup 2009 season begins with the Oulton Park race in Cheshire which takes place from the 11th to the 13th of April.
