China Challenge

Volkswagen ID. R on the “Road to Heaven”

It will be a journey to the ‘Land of Smiles’ and a challenge in unknown territory: In September 2019, the Volkswagen ID. R will take on the Tianmen Shan Big Gate Road in China, a spectacular mountain road with 99 corners winding its way up Tianmen Mountain, which stands at 1,519 metres above sea level. Surrounded by one of the most fascinating mountain landscapes in the world, the mountain will provide the stage for a very special record attempt.
Pikes Peak winner Romain Dumas (F) will be at the wheel of the fully-electric race car on the technically demanding mountain road, as it attempts to beat a virtual record, set in advance of the attempt within an online gaming competition. The time clocked by the fastest participant will serve as the benchmark for Dumas, who will attempt to better it under real conditions.
