WOLFSBURG, Germany – A new car, new driver pairings, a new website: as the further development of the previous version, the Volkswagen Race Touareg 2, makes its competitive debut at the Rally Baja Portalegre (21 to 23 October) in Portugal, Volkswagen Motorsport re-launches its Internet presence as well.
The website, www.volkswagen-motorsport.com, is launched on 20 October, sporting a more modern visual design, improved navigation and new features.
Provided with the latest reports, driver quotes and photographs, fans will be able to witness the outings of the Volkswagen works driver pairings, Jutta Kleinschmidt/Fabrizia Pons and Bruno Saby/Michel Périn, as well as their new team-mates, Carlos Sainz/Andy Schulz and Mark Miller/Dirk von Zitzewitz in Portugal. At the Dakar Rally, the marathon classic in January 2006, the website’s enhanced “live” character will assure comprehensive reporting from the desert rally with a daily look behind the scenes of Volkswagen Motorsport’s factory engagement.
Apart from Volkswagen’s marathon rally commitment, the ADAC Volkswagen Polo Cup is another highlight of the website. Race and qualifying reports from the final round of the “touring car school” at the Hockenheimring this weekend, along with interesting facts about the juniors’ series, can be found as well as extensive information on the technology of the race touring car that is based on the new Polo.
Basic information and the history of Volkswagen Motorsport as well as current results and statistics complement the tri-lingual Internet presentation in German, English and French.
In addition, there is a new fan section where Internet users can download background screens, send E-cards or receive surfing tips related to Volkswagen’s entire motorsport involvement from an extensive webguide.
