Preparatory phase for the new ID. R record attempt.
  • Four-day test in Almería brings many new insights
  • ID. R drives on Bridgestone Potenza Tyres for the first time in southern Spain
  • Record attempt for electric vehicles on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring planned for summer 2019

The countdown has begun: at the sun-drenched “Circuit de Almería” in Andalucía, the purely electric powered ID. R began the preparatory phase for its record attempt on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Driver Romain Dumas, who in summer 2019 will seek to break the current record for electric vehicles on the 20.832 kilometres racetrack in the Eifel, completed the first test runs in Spain with Bridgestone tyres this week.
