VW WINS FINAL ROUND OF 2016 CHINESE RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP

Chris Atkinson has won the final round of the 2016 Chinese Rally Championship today to clinch the manufacturers’ title for FAW-VW for the second consecutive year.

 

Atkinson led the snow and ice rally held in Changchun, in north eastern China, from start to finish, winning every stage.  This also made it a clean sweep of victories for Atkinson in this year’s championship, however non-Chinese drivers are not eligible for the drivers’ title. FAW-VW drivers Duwey and Dean, took third and fifth places in Changchun.   

 

The VW Golf SCRC has now won 11 of 13 events since its debut in 2014.
