Volkswagen ID. R completes its first test on the Nordschleife

Volkswagen ID. R completes its first test on the Nordschleife
  • First time on the Nordschleife for the fully electric powered race car
  • Volkswagen Motorsport intensifies its preparation for the attempt to set a new Nordschleife lap record for electric vehicles
  • Romain Dumas: “It was a great moment to drive the ID. R on my favourite track.”

One day after the world premiere for the new ID. R at the Nürburgring, Romain Dumas drove the first test laps on the Nordschleife in the fully electric race car. On the 20.832-kilometre-long circuit, the Frenchman completed an extensive testing programme, driving two alternative ID. R chassis to make optimal use of the available time. In doing so, Volkswagen Motorsport began the final preparation phase for the attempt to set a new lap record for electric vehicles on the tradition-steeped track in the Eifel with the 500 kW (680 PS) race car.
