Polo R Glory

Polo R Glory

For Ogier/Ingrassia the result of the opening stage of their home event, the Rally France, means the Volkswagen works duo can no longer be caught at the top of the table in the premier league of rallying.

This is their maiden title in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). With the Polo R WRC, Volkswagen is making its first appearance in the WRC in 2013, and has already exceeded all expectations in its rookie season.

Volkswagen also leads the Manufacturers’ Championship with three races to go.

Volkswagen Board Member for Technical Development, Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neusser, and his predecessor Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, father of Volkswagen’s WRC project and Audi Board Member for Technical Development since July, were in Strasbourg to witness the moment the title was won. “This is an incredibly emotional moment for me,” said Dr. Neusser. “I am pleased to be here today to see Sébastien Ogier claim the first title for Volkswagen in our debut year in the World Rally Championship. I would like to thank the outstanding team, which has performed perfectly all year.”
