Volkswagen has launched a new iPhone application about the Dakar Rally in Apple’s online store today. Under the name of ‘Volkswagen Rally mobile – 2010 Dakar’, the application is now available free of charge. Before and during the Dakar Rally, it will send news, results, videos and background information directly to the user’s display.
iPhone users will be kept up to speed about the Dakar programme of the five factory-prepared and factory-fielded Race Touareg vehicles from Volkswagen, receiving exciting insights into the rally world of Volkswagen Motorsport. The Wolfsburg-based automobile manufacturer will contest the off-road classic that leads through Argentina and Chile – running twice across the Andes as well as through the gruelling Atacama desert and the legendary pampas – from 2 to 16 January 2010 as the title defender.
