Volkswagen to take on “Dakar” challenge
Again in 2010
Volkswagen will again participate in the legendary Dakar Rally in 2010. After the one-two victory and the historic first "Dakar” triumph of a diesel-powered car this year, the automobile manufacturer from Wolfsburg will yet again take on one of the major challenges
of international motorsport.

"No doubt, the 2009 Dakar Rally contributed to the fact that the Volkswagen brand is now shining even brighter around the world,” said Prof Dr Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Executive Board of the Volkswagen Group, on the occasion of the "Dakar” victory celebration at the Wolfsburg "Autostadt”. "Therefore, our participation in this event is a good investment in the future of our company and that's why we decided to again compete in the Dakar Rally in 2010.”

In the Race Touareg powered by a 280-hp TDI diesel engine Giniel de Villiers/Dirk von Zitzewitz (RSA/D) had won the "Dakar” that was staged for the first time in South America; as the runners-up, Mark Miller/Ralph Pitchford (USA/RSA) gave Volkswagen a one-two victory. In 2010, the Dakar Rally will be held in Argentina and Chile again, from 02 to 17 January.


"Besides our joy about this sporting exploit, the positive response by media around the world convinced us,” said Dr Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Executive Board of the Volkswagen Brand with responsibility for Technical Development including the manufacturer's motorsport commitment. "Our ‘Dakar' win stands for enormous reliability and innovative technology – and these are values which substantially stand for all Volkswagen vehicles. Particularly in TDI technology, the development activities for motorsport result in valuable synergies benefiting our production vehicles as well,” commented Dr Ulrich Hackenberg.

Preparations for the two-week cross-country rally covering 9,500 kilometres across the desert and the pampas have already started. "We've got quick drivers, a reliable car and an experienced team – in other words, everything we need to again contest the ‘Dakar' and to fight for victory,” said Volkswagen Motorsport Director Kris Nissen. That is why in 2010 the victorious Race Touareg 2 will compete in the event yet again.
