      Wolfsburg (24 May 2009). The Volkswagen Scirocco cars powered by natural gas and petrol engines superbly mastered the world’s most difficult circuit marathon, the 24-hour race on the Nürburgring, by clinching two class victories.

      The Scirocco GT24-CNG with innovative EcoFuel technology of Vanina Ickx (B), Peter Terting (D), Klaus Niedzwiedz (D) and Thomas Klenke (D) won the category for vehicles with alternative powertrains (AT) and finished 17th overall, outperforming numerous more powerful cars. The petrol-powered Scirocco GT24 of youngsters Jimmy Johansson (S), Florian Gruber (D), Nicki Thiim (DK) and Martin Karlhofer (A) achieved a remarkable 15th place and Volkswagen's third consecutive victory in the class of cars with two-litre turbo engines (SP3T)...

      I watched the majority and the end of the 24h Nurburgring and was extremely pleased to see the Scirocco do so well. Makes me wish VW would bring them over all the more.

      Whoever is making your business decisions needs to be fired.

      are these cars changed to the 4 motion AWD or are they FWD?
      do you like my smokescreen device? It came with the car

      It's still FWD

      That's some serious racing credibility VW earned! This is just outstanding!

      I've been googling and I can not find a comprehensive list of the cars per class and finishing times ... anyone have better luck

      I have a bet that the 'Rocco beat an EVO and STI ... the guys are FWD Nazi's / haters and they say no way
