The Volkswagen Beetle Supercar returns to competition this year in the second season of the Americas Rallycross series.

10 Apr 2019 | International News : U.S.A

Two Beetle supercars will be entered under the Andretti Rallycross banner, with support from Volkswagen R, Volkswagen's performance division.

The season begins 8 to 9 June at the historic Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, where a brand new 1.13km circuit will be built around the 'Keyhole' section of the track. The cars will then compete through the rest of the season, taking in races at Gateway Motorsports Park in Illinois, Trois-Rivieres in Canada, and Circuit of the Americas in Texas, before the final round at Mid-Ohio in October.

The team will continue to race the Beetle Rallycross vehicles, built by Volkswagen Motorsport in Europe, and developed by Andretti Rallycross in the U.S.A. The cars will race with the same 2.0-litre 560bhp turbocharged engines that propelled the team to success in 2017 and 2018.
