Phalguna will continue driving the Volkswagen Polo INRC2 car throughout the 2018 season.

Volkswagen Motorsport India’s Customer Sport programme allows rally drivers to get a factory prepared Volkswagen Polo rally car as per suited to their individual requirements. In addition, the factory’s Motorsport team also provides on-ground technical support to the drivers and their teams.

Mr. Sirish Vissa, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport India said, “After our global success in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) for four years on the trot, Volkswagen Motorsport changed its focus to developing customer cars globally and we followed suit here in India too.
