“We can be very happy with having won in our category once again. It’s always a great feeling to see the chequered flag after such a difficult race. After my third race here on the Nordschleife, we have finally become friends. I had a soft spot for the track all along, but now it’s more of a case of love that is also reciprocated,” said Sainz.
In addition, Niedzwiedz expressed: “The Scirocco cars drove precisely and were as reliable as clockwork. Being lucky enough to be driving both of the cars, I sometimes found myself in a duel with my own vehicle – something I’ve never experienced before in all these years. In all, this race was definitely one of the most challenging ever for me.”
After the race completion, Volkswagen Motorsport Director Kris Nissen stated: “The 24-Hour Race at the Nürburgring is extremely challenging and like all the other Scirocco drivers, our three Dakar Rally winners did a great job, while the vehicle itself once more demonstrated just how reliable it is. All in all, we are pleased with our performance.”
