Volkswagen introduced the one-make Junior Cup series for the 1976 season. In its inaugural year of running, 50 specially commissioned Sciroccos were raced using the new for '76 fuel injected engine and the premise of the new race series was to give young, promising racers the opportunity to prove themselves in a relatively cheap race series that was on a level playing field due to the identical cars.
