Sebastien Ogier to drive Volkswagen Polo R WRC at Race of Champions

Sebastien Ogier

Sebastien Ogier will give the Volkswagen Polo R WRC its world debut at the Race of Champions on Saturday night.

The Frenchman is scheduled to begin serious testing of an interim version of the car in the near future, with VW yet to decide upon its final specification of the machine until further running has been completed.

The RoC display, which will come during the interval between rounds of the Nations' Cup at Dusseldorf's Esprit Arena, will be Ogier's first public appearance as a VW driver.

A VW spokesman said: "Sebastien will be making some demonstration laps with the Polo tomorrow night. This will be his first time driving the Polo and, of course, it will be the first time the Polo has been seen by the public."

Ogier signed for VW last month and will contest a full WRC season in 2012 at the wheel of a Skoda Fabia S2000, running with the manufacturer's junior team.
