Volkswagen Motorsport and Scania Germany are starting to the 2009 motorsport season together.
The truck manufacturer that ranks among the world’s leaders in its field and has been the ninth brand of the Volkswagen Group since 2008, equips the successful squad from Wolfsburg with three 500-hp tractors for the race transporters sporting the colour ‘Volkswagen Silver’. From now on, Volkswagen demonstrates sheer power, dynamic design and top quality not only on the race track but on the way to the paddock as well.
In addition, the new partnership includes the ADAC Volkswagen Polo Cup. Three blue Cup Polo cars advertise ‘Scania Services. Immer an Ihrer Seite (Always at your side)’ in the 2009 season. The three ‘Scania-Polo’ vehicles will make their debut this weekend (16/17 May) at the first of nine races of the successful touring car school at Hockenheim.
‘Volkswagen and Scania both stand for top quality in vehicle engineering. Of course motorsport offers an excellent stage to demonstrate this to large public audiences,’ says Volkswagen Motorsport Director Kris Nissen. ‘I’m very happy that Scania will accompany our squad to the races with their tractors. This means that even on the way to the venues we’re proving what Volkswagen stands for in motorsport: for powerful and high-performing products.’
‘Our focus is always on reliability, safety and driver comfort,’ emphasizes Mikael Lundqvist, Director Strategy, Communications and Marketing for Scania Germany Austria. ‘We will be pleased to prove these qualities in our commitment for Volkswagen Motorsport as well.
