From Beijing to Wolfsburg
Rainer Zietlow's 16th project was the transfer of two new VW Touareg type CR from Beijing to Wolfsburg. After the official presentation at the Beijing Motor Show, the most important car fair in Asia, journalists from various print and TV media were able to convince themselves of the qualities of the new premium vehicle in individual stages under the guidance of the experienced long-distance record driver.
This long route took the visitors through beautiful landscapes, dunes and canyons, endless steppe, to the spaceport in Baikonur and to the lakes of Aral and Baikal. From 05 to 29 April 2018, Rainer Zietlow and the accompanying journalists covered more than 16,000 kilometers. In the journey, the large SUV was able to demonstrate its capabilities away from the main asphalt routes, even on smaller sand and gravel roads.
Despite difficult-to-calculate road and weather conditions, the new Volkswagen showed unrestricted long-distance capability and reliability. Not only the passengers, but also Rainer Zietlow were able to convince themselves of this on their journey through China, Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Germany.
