Great news for all rallye fans: VW is expected to confirm their return to WRC soon.
olkswagen is expected to confirm a full assault on the World Rally Championship before the end of this month, according to well placed sources.
The German manufacturer, which has been linked to a WRC campaign since the series confirmed its new 1600cc-based regulations, is being tipped to announce its programme at a party on 22 March that will celebrate its Dakar rally raid success.
Despite earlier speculation that VW would base its new rally car on a Scirocco, it’s understood that the Polo is the model under development. French engineer Francois-Xavier Demaison, a man with experience of Citroën, Peugeot and Subaru campaigns, is said to have been entrusted with the car’s process.
