A new challenge is coming up very soon. This time Rainer Zietlow and his team want to drive the 12.300 km long traditional "Silk Road" from Shanghai to Venice with the new Volkswagen Tiguan TSI with 150hp produced in the Russian Volkswagen factory in Kaluga. You can see our map showing the exact route. Start of our scout tour to Shanghai is next week on Tuesday, the 25th of July at the Port of Venice. Start of the world record run is at the 20th of August 2017 in Shanghai. The team and Tiguan are prepared and we are looking forward to our start.
Last week the Tiguan got a last check at a Volkswagen dealer in Moscow and we installed an additional fuel tank (150 litres) and Eibach springs and shocks. Thanks to Ralf and his team the complete interior setup looks now smart and fixed. Finally we put on the sponsors stickers.
