Volkswagen is gearing up for the 2010 Dakar Rally by launching a new free-of-charge iPhone application solely for the much-anticipated event. The new app, which Volkswagen is calling the “Volkswagen Rally mobile – 2010 Dakar”, allows users to keep updated on Volkswagens preparation for the event through news, videos, and background information on the company’s Race Touaregs , which will see action in the two-week rally event in South America, which will run from Argentina to Chile from January 2 to 16, 2010.
According to Volkswagen’s motorsport director Kris Nissen, the new Volkswagen Rally iPhone app will allow users with never-before-seen access to Volkswagen’s preparation and performance before and during the event. "The iPhone application for the Volkswagen’s involvement in the Dakar is unique in the world of rally racing to date as well and offers users of the cult mobile the chance to stay informed about current Dakar events around the clock."
The 2010 Dakar Rally will start in less than a month so you’ll have to forgive us for being a little more giddy than usual because, like most rally fans all over the world, we can’t wait for it to start. So in the meantime, we’re getting our juices on with anything and everything that’s Dakar-related – starting with downloading this new Volkswagen iPhone app.
