Onboard video: the Volkswagen ID.R’s record lap on the Nürburgring

Fastest emission-free lap on the Nürburgring from the perspective of driver Romain Dumas
Three records within twelve months for the fully electric ID.R

6:05.336 minutes. During this time, Romain Dumas (F) lapped the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in the Volkswagen ID.R. It was the fastest lap ever driven in an emission-free racing car on the 20.8 km long racetrack in the Eifel. With an average speed of 204.96 km/h, Dumas once again underlined with the ID.R the impressive performance capabilities of electric drive from Volkswagen.

 

Within just twelve months, Volkswagen Motorsport has set three track records with the ID.R. On 24 June 2018, Dumas won the famous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (USA) with an impressive track record of 7:57.148 minutes. Barely three weeks later, the Frenchman drove the ID.R to a new best time for electric vehicles of 43.86 seconds at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England. Now, the e-record on the Nordschleife has followed.
