VW Victorious at Sweden Winter Rally

[dropcap]F[/dropcap]our wins in a row at the only winter rally in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC): Volkswagen won the Rally Sweden through Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia (F/F) and remains unbeaten on ice and snow with the Polo R WRC.

For Ogier and Ingrassia, this latest victory was the third success in four years at this classic rally and their 34th in total.

cae29a13-aff8-48f1-8ab8-9cbb1e9d3ed4The road to victory demanded a herculean effort from the three-time world champions, for which Volkswagen was rewarded with its eleventh win in a row and 36th triumph in 41 rallies.

Among those on-site to watch the latest success was Dr. Frank Welsch, Board Member for Development.

The duo overcame the challenge of opening the route on roads covered with a layer of fresh snow, and thus having to sweep the road clear for the following cars, with one of the best displays of driving and navigating in recent years.

Andreas Mikkelsen/Anders Jæger (N/N) ended their home race in fourth place. In contrast, Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila had to abandon any hope of a fourth victory at the Rally Sweden on Friday, when they suffered a broken drive shaft.
