Volkswagen Motorsport announced the debut of the new Polo GTI R5 in WRC2 in the second half of 2018.
VW is not going to return to the championship with a factory team, but will provide technical support to their customers.
Polo GTI R5 will be available to the teams-clients in the second half of the season 2018 and it is with the home for VW racing in Germany.
In the coming weeks will begin tests Polo GTI R5.
“If we talk about Polo GTI R5, then we try to transfer the experience of four championship titles in the WRC on a client race to offer the first-rate technique for various rally Championships – national series to the WRC,’ said Volkswagen Motorsport Director Sven Smeets. – Before releasing the vehicle to the competition, we thoroughly test the technique in different conditions.”
Recall that since the closure of the factory team in the WRC VW has focused its efforts on customer Motorsport programmes, for example, in TCR.
