VW: Not racing in NASCAR, but considering Indy Car and ALMS


VW is thinking about entering a US racing league, either Indy Car or ALMS. Or both?

According to TheDetroitBureau.com, Wolfgang Durheimer, head of Volkwagen Group motorsports, says his company is currently investigating a number of U.S. competition venues, including the American Le Mans Series and Grand Am, as well as Indy Car and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. As you may recall, Audi took to Pike’s Peak last year to show off the company’s autonomous vehicle project, and Volkswagen has enjoyed good success in Colorado Springs with their diesel-powered Touareg race trucks.
