Two records and half a dozen awards: the pioneering Volkswagen ID. R electrified the motorsport world in 2018 and impressed editors, experts and fans alike. The ID. R’s sensational, record-breaking run on Pikes Peak has now received more recognition – the “Motorsport Moment of the Year” award, courtesy of American magazine Autoweek: “The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb has been around for more than a hundred years. Plenty of records have been set, and plenty of teams have come away with improbable wins. But this year, an electric Volkswagen dominated every other car on the hill – and with a record time to boot.“
