Among the drivers for Scirocco Racer Coupe will be the two-time Le Mans winner Hans-Joachim Stuck and the two-time World Rally Champion Carlos Sainz. Speaking at the car’s launch last month, Hans-Joachim Stuck said "the Scirocco is one of the most uncomplicated racing cars I’ve ever driven. It’s really fun."
Earlier Hans-Joachim Stuck, Dieter Depping, Francois Verbist and Thomas Mutsch completed a comprehensive endurance test with Scirocco race-bred version at the Motorsport Arena at Oschersleben. Last year's winner the VW Golf GTI hatch also used the same 300hp 2.0L TFSI engine design. So things already look ominous for the VW racer but currently there are no plans for a street variant of this car.
