Volkswagen Amarok V6 sets record at WTAC

An apprentice-tuned Volkswagen Amarok V6 has broken the two-minute barrier around Eastern Creek at this year's World Time Attack Challenge (WTAC). The special ute is based on a stock Amarok V6 Highline. A team of top apprentices from the local VW head office workshop and dealer network made an array of modifications to the mechanicals to make it track-ready, with a target of lapping Eastern Creek Raceway faster than a Volkswagen Golf GTI.
