Dakar 2008
VW has just finished 350 days of preparation for the Dakar 2008 rallye. Great impressions!

“After the Dakar is before the Dakar,” says Volkswagen Motorsport Director Kris Nissen. The Volkswagen factory team spent twelve months preparing carefully for the technical, sporting and logistical challenge of the legendary Dakar Rally. Preparations for January 2008 started with a de-briefing with technicians and factory drivers immediately after the finish in Dakar in the afternoon of the 21 January 2007. More than two weeks through five countries, almost 5,700 competitive kilometres through the desert, mountains and along hard gravel tracks: The Dakar Rally demands record performances from the Volkswagen factory drivers and their four Race Touareg prototypes.
