Volkswagen customers are in action around the world with the Golf GTI TCR. Roughly 30 national, international and regional championships are held in accordance with TCR regulation, including TCR Japan.
February - Black is beautiful
Volkswagen is pushing electromobility to the limit with the ID.R. The prototype has its sights set on more records in 2019. Preparation is key – as here in its black carbon outfit at the tests in Le Castellet (France).
March - World champions for the world cup
The FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) also sees Volkswagen line up with the Golf GTI TCR. One of those at the wheel is 2012 world touring car champion Rob Huff (GB), who drives for Sébastien Loeb Racing.
April - Running up that hill
The Volkswagen ID.R produces a jaw-dropping performance at the iconic Goodwood Festival of Speed: with a time of 39.9 seconds, the fully-electric race car sets a new record for the hillclimb – making it even faster than Formula 1.
May - Twilight with the girls
Volkswagen customer team “Girls Only” lines up in the Nürburgring 24 Hours with the Golf GTI TCR. What makes this so special: from drivers to mechanics, every member of the team is female.
June - Exhibition stuff
Electromobility at its most thrilling. Just weeks after the ID.R’s eye-catching E-record on the Nordschleife, the prototype sports car returns to the “Green Hell” for demonstration laps during the 24-hour race.
July - Class at a classic
Craig Breen/Paul Nagle (IRL/IRL) claim a commanding victory at the Rally Ypres in the Polo GTI R5 – the Volkswagen for customer rallying. “The best R5 I have ever driven,” says experienced WRC driver Breen after the race.
August - A bird’s eye view
A historic lap: with a time of 6:05.336 minutes, the ID.R completes the fastest lap of the Nordschleife ever by an electric car. And the most efficient: with just a quarter of the energy required by a GT3 race car.
September - Volcano racing
Sete Cidades – the legendary stage at the Azores Rally. Norbert Herczig (H) pushes his Polo GTI R5 to the limit on the narrow rim of the crater of what used to be the most active volcano on the Atlantic island of São Miguel.
October - Benny’s back yard
Benjamin Leuchter (D) is right at home on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. He stopped counting when he reached 1,000 laps. That is years ago now. It was here in 2019 that Leuchter claimed his maiden victory in the FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR).
November - Head-turner
The fully-electric Volkswagen ID.R is a force of nature. With its spectacular jet sound, it exerts a physical presence that leaves very few motorsport fans untouched during its record attempts. As is the case at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
December - Next-gen Solberg
The Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 is the ideal entry-level car for those finding their feet in the world of rallying. The most prominent example is Oliver Solberg, son of world rally champion Petter Solberg. Winter rallies are not the only events, at which “Solberg 2.0” shines.
