Volkswagen is really close to officially confirm the entry in WRC. More exactly, the Germans will enter this year’s edition of World Rally Championship and they will reveal all the details by the end of this month, at the Portuguese Rally which starts on March 24.
However, we can tell you few important details about the plans of the Germans for this season of WRC. Volkswagen will spend around 100 million euros this year but they also announced that only from 2013 the fun will begin as they have a limited schedule for this year.
