Volkswagen Racing / Rene Georges Rallysport:
Rene Georges Rallysport is the Official Sattelite team of VW Motorsport for the VW Polo Super 1600 and from 2006 also the official importer and distributor of Volkswagen Racing South Africa for the VW Polo 5 Super 2000.
In 2004 / 2005 Rene Georges Rallysport had 2 Polo's driving in Portugal and 1 car in Hungaria and Belgium.
I was interested in the Portugese program but as the first rally was already done in Portugal i started with the Hungarian Championship and driver Zsolt Kakuszi ( Maxx Rally Team ),
and i continued to help them in 2005, i built up a good friendship with the Maxx Rally Team.
He missed the Hungarian Championship for Super 1600 cars by 1 Point in 2005 !
I was helping RGRS to introduce the VW Polo Super 2000 and do some Client Support ( mostly foreign clients ) as i speak a lot of languages, and i helped with the Team coordinating work.
The New VW Polo 5 Super 2000 was driven in Belgium by Freddy Loix and on some selected IRC Rally's.
and Alberto Hevia from Spain was driving the 2007 Spanish Asphalt championship, they both finished 2nd in their 2007 championships.
Tomek Czopik from Poland drove the car on some selectes Polish, European and IRC rounds, but changed to a Abarth Punto S 2000 after Iepers Rally 2007.( his High point was setting the fastest time on the 1st Stage of the Croatia Rally).
Due to the Tragic Testing accident that happened on 10 March 2008 and took the life of the RGRS Engineer Hans Goudezeune i made the decission to return to help the Volkswagen Team. ( below you find a Picture gallery for all of us to remember Hans).
Rene Georges Rallysport had a major structural change since the beginning of 2008, new service truck, change in Logistics, etc, etc.
a big step forward for a small private Volkswagen Team that does great work with the Polo Super 2000.
Many good results have been made by the VW Polo S2000, 2nd place in the 2007 Spanish Asphalt championship, 1st place in 2008 Belgian S2000 championship, 2nd Place in the Austrian Championship 2008 with Kris Rosenberger, Victory in the 2009 BP Rally Austria, etc...
