Take a Trip Through Volkswagen’s Racing History

Volkswagen has been going to the races for 50 years now and to celebrate Volkswagen UK’s YouTube channel published this literal video rewind through some the most entertaining moments in that history.

The video starts in modern day WRC, works back through Dakar, the World Touring Car Championship, Polo racing, Beetle racing, single seater racing, and Formula Vee,  to name only a few.

The video is a good reminder of Volkswagen’s rich racing history. And if you’re going to be in Berlin in the near future, you should also check out Volkswagen’s “50 Years of Volkswagen Motorsport” exhibition, which opened earlier this week.

The exhibition closes on October 30, and features real race cars, information, and a driving simulator where you can race to set a better time than current World Rally Champion, Sebastien Ogier.
