Variety, racing and record-holders at the lake
The GTI meet traditionally involves colourful variety: Volkswagen GTI cars of all kinds, from original to self-built, from straightforward family cars to powerful racers, from first generation to today – everything is represented at Wörthersee. Furthermore, Volkswagen Motorsport and the GTI have shared a long history together, and so new racing models will be there for all to see in Reifnitz: the standard Golf GTI TCR1 with 213 kW (290 PS) will be presented together with the 250 kW (340 PS) racing version of the touring car from Volkswagen Motorsport, put to use in the FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) as well as in other TCR series around the world.
In 2019, Volkswagen Motorsport and the ID.R will also be bringing E-Power to Wörthersee: Volkswagen’s first fully electric race car delivers 500 kW (680 PS) and last year made history when it set a new all-time record at the legendary Pikes Peak hill-climb (Colorado / USA). The ID.R awaits a new challenge for which Volkswagen Motorsport is currently preparing: breaking the lap record for electric vehicles at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
