Dakar Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 video review

Henry Catchpole drove the 2011 VW Race Touareg in conditions that are slightly different to those that it was designed for...

The 2011 Dakar is currently in full swing and in December last year I had the chance to drive one of Volkswagen's latest Race Touaregs. The conditions, however, weren't exactly what the car had been designed for - it was minus 13 degrees and deep snow! You can read all about my drive in issue 153 of evo (on sale now - an ideal way to lift the January blues) but I also managed to take some video clips whilst I was there and I have now fashioned these into what you see above. Hope you enjoy it.
