Preparation on the Nordschleife: Carlos Sainz’s longest special stage

We have yet to find official results from the weekends 39th Adenauer ADAC but they ended up fourth in class. It also says below that the Race Scirocco is powered by a 325hp TFSI engine. 25hp extra now?

Preparation on the Nordschleife: Carlos Sainz's longest special stage

“That was arguably my longest special stage,” commented the two-time World Rally Champion and Volkswagen factory driver Carlos Sainz after completing his first race laps on the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife.

“And it was really good fun, too,” affirmed the Spaniard with a happy smile on his face. With a Golf GTI, Carlos Sainz and his cross-country rally team-mate Giniel de Villiers (RSA) as well as Hans-Joachim Stuck (A), the Volkswagen Group’s Motorsport Representative since the beginning of this year, prepared for the 24-Hour race at the Nürburgring (24/25 May) in a four-hour race, which they finished fourth in class. At the endurance classic in the “Green Hell” Volkswagen will be fielding three racing versions of the new Scirocco that will only be launched on the market in August. Last Monday the Race Scirocco, which is powered by a 325-hp two-litre TFSI turbo engine, had completed its first laps on the Nordschleife, which puts exacting demands on both man and material. “The test was absolutely satisfactory,” Volkswagen Motorsport Director Kris Nissen summed up the result.
