99 corners to Heaven

99 doses of adrenalin – A breath-taking road for the Volkswagen ID.R’s record attempt in China

A motorsport expedition to China: on 02 September, Volkswagen will take on Tianmen Mountain Big Gate Road – a road shrouded in legend. The goal is to set a record time with the fully-electric ID.R. Opened in 2006, after eight years of construction, Big Gate Road has already taken on mythical status. With 99 tight corners, the road winds its way roughly eleven kilometres to “Heaven’s Gate” – a natural, 131.5-metre arch in the cliffs on Tianmenshan, “Heaven’s Gate Mountain”. The locals speak respectfully of the route, which meanders up the mountain like a flying dragon.
