The sound of screeching tyres can be heard from the racetrack. On the terrace in front of the pit building, journalists discuss their impressions of the test drive, while colleagues in the media workroom email already completed articles to their editors. A few metres further along in the car park, a photographer makes the most of the soft winter sunshine. The press presentation for the Polo GTI is in full swing.
Volkswagen invited around 400 journalists from all over the world to Majorca to get to know the latest member of the GTI family. The groups of guests change daily, with the entire event set to last two weeks.
