Volkswagen Amarok supporting the 2012 Dakar Rally

For the third successive year, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will be providing a fleet to the event organisation team for the 2012 Dakar Rally.

The A.S.O. (Amaury Sport Organisation) will have access to a total of nearly forty vehicles, including thirty Amarok SUVs, throughout the legendary event, with celebrities and members of the press invited by Volkswagen Motor Sport to experience the Dakar Rally in an Amarok.

During the rally’s rest day, Formula One legend Jacky Ickx will be showing the Scorpions’ Rudolf Schenker and boxing world champion Dariusz Michalczewski how to safely handle the Amarok, while windsurfers Klaas Voget, Bjoern Dunkerbeck and Robby Swift will be heading to the Atacama Desert to experience to hit the dunes.

The 9,000 kilometre test of endurance will run from 1 to 15 January starting at Mar del Plata, Argentina.
