Silk Way Rally: Volkswagen armada heads to Dakar dress rehearsal.



The first ever Silk Way Rally between 5 and 13 September forms the Dakar dress rehearsal for Volkswagen. It runs from Tartastan (a constituent republic of the Russian Federation) via Kazakhstan to Turkmenistan. The Wolfsburg based automobile manufacturer fields four Race Touareg in the cross country rally in the Orient.

The Volkswagen armada with its service vehicles set off on Saturday 29 August to the rally, organised by Dakar-Organiser A.S.O. The support and rally vehicles are transported by ship from Travem√ľnde to Helsinki, then in convoy through Finnland and Russia to the start venue Kasan. The rally starts there on 5 September with a ten kilometre long prologue stage.
