I was there for the hill, not the future. But, in the end, it was Volkswagen's I.D. R and not America's Mountain that took my breath away. The Pikes Peak International Hillclimb gave a bewildering insight into what's coming our way as VW showcased tomorrow's world today (actually last month).
But what next? No sooner had the dust begun to settle on the latest addition to the Wolfsburg team's trophy cabinet than folk a few doors down were sitting around a table and talking about the future.
Providing the FIA lands the required commitment from four manufacturers before August 15, e-World Rallycross 2020 looks like a runner. And Volkswagen Motorsport, as a fully fledged factory team, is near-certain to be back in business.
