15 May 2018 | International News : U.K.


IMG is pleased to announce a new partnership with Volkswagen R to showcase the firm's flagship R range at the Speedmachine festival at Silverstone on 25th to 27th May. The collaboration will offer event-goers the unique opportunity to get out onto the iconic track with an adrenaline-pumping passenger ride experience alongside a professional racing driver.

Volkswagen R is the inspiration for the Polo R Supercar, which will be seen competing at Cooper Tires World RX of Great Britain at Silverstone in the hands of defending champion Johan Kristoffersson and motorsport legend Petter Solberg. To celebrate the manufacturer's success in World RX, Volkswagen R will take pride of place at Speedmachine with a display of its models and the opportunity to meet both Kristoffersson and Solberg.

Attendees will also have the chance to get a racer's eye-view of the famed Silverstone national circuit with a passenger ride experience in the Golf R, which packs a huge 286bhp and 380Nm of torque to reach 0-100km/h in just 4.6 seconds. This is achieved through its use of race-bred technology, including a seven-speed DSG gearbox, 4MOTION four-wheel drive and pioneering launch control start.
