On the way to a new racing age - Documentary

The “Electric Racing Car of the Year” award was presented to the fully-electrically driven Volkswagen ID.R at the “Race Night” on the eve of the Essen Motor Show.

This year’s auto show (30 November to 8 December 2019) is once again proving to be a major attraction for car and motorsport fans from all over Europe.

The prize, awarded by Auto Bild sportscars and Auto Bild motorsport, acknowledges the technology and successes of the 500 kW (680 PS) electric racing car, which has set five records in four countries, on three continents, in the past two years.

“I am delighted that the ID.R has been chosen as the racing car of the year in the Electro category this year”, says Volkswagen Motorsport Director Sven Smeets, who picked up the prize at the Race Night.

“I receive the trophy as a representative of the entire Volkswagen Motorsport team, which has performed so magnificently over the past two years.

This prize also acknowledges the engineers and technicians behind the project, who are often away from the limelight but contribute hugely to its success.”
