Volkswagen carries out Monte Carlo testing

Volkswagen has released images from its week of testing the Polo R WRC car ahead of next year’s Monte Carlo Rally (January 14 – 19).

At an altitude of almost 1,500 metres, Volkswagen had been gearing up for the iconic event, going through quick uphill and downhill sections in the Polo R WRC during the day and nighttime, perfecting asphalt and snow set-ups.

New World Rally Champion Sebastien Ogier was in attendance, along with Latvala and Mikkelsen, who divided up the test work, covering over 800 kilometres during the first four days.
