    VAG to pull out of Motorsport post 2016

    Dieselgate forces VAG will pull out of Motorsport by the end of 2016.

    Opens up a real Silly Seson!
    This deserves it own thread!

    Who goes where, and what will the impact on WRC be?

    Sad news...

    Apparently Volkswagen Motorsports main program will now be its TCR campaign and it's rallycross campaign.

    Are you serious? Why would they stimulate rumours?

    They will report it when it's official news, as they should.

    Well it's not entirely true - there will still be VW Group programmes; Formula E, GT Racing, World RX, DTM, TCR, etc

    Yeah right, but they're still in WEC and WRC as well, aren't they?
