VW Race Touareg

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.
