Volkswagen R has announced Tanner Foust as its international Brand Ambassador.

Foust is an American Racing Driver, Stunt Man and Presenter as well as a four-time Rallycross Champion, winning his most recent title in 2019 behind the wheel of a Volkswagen Beetle R. The Volkswagen pilot also has two championships in Formula Drift under his belt, along with four gold medals at the X-Games.

Tanner Foust, a four-time Rallycross Champion, will be Volkswagen R's new brand ambassador
The 46-year old is actively involved in the coordination and approval process for new Volkswagen R vehicles.

At the beginning of February, the GP Ice Race in Zell am See, Austria, brought the successful combination of Foust and the Beetle R back together. Foust drove the 552bhp Beetle to victory in the American Rallycross Championships in 2019 enabling the now decommissioned model series to go out in true style. In Zell, the successful pairing drifted over the ice track with ease.

His new 'offices' will now be the eR1 and a Atlas Cross Sport, prepared for the Baja 1000 Race. The eR1 is a test vehicle for a purely electric racing car based on the body of a Volkswagen Golf. Foust also attended the largest Volkswagen meet in the Middle East - the Dub Drive GC in Abu Dhabi - which took place in February. In addition to some spectacular drift shows, this year's R-Model of the Year was also selected at the event. Foust is well aware of how much love goes into fans' carefully tweaked Volkswagen models at the meet.
