VW: Announcing WRC return in May?

VW Race Touareg

Street word has it that VW will announce their return to the world of rallye at WRC in May.

After waffling for a year on a possible Formula 1 bid, NASCAR entry, or Le Mans prototype competition, a report out today says the Volkswagen Group may finally be putting its go-fast eggs in the World Rally Championship basket.

According to the report, it could get done with the Volkswagen brand, too. Audi might seem like a more natural choice based on its history, but Volkswagen is already estabished in the extreme rally sector, with its Race Touareg (pictured) banging it out in some of the harshest environments in the world. Rally might seem a bit normal in comparison.
