    Wow, after easily setting records at Pikes Peak, Goodwood, Nurburgring, VW is taking the prototype to China for another very difficult record attempt at Tianmen Mountain.

    Currently the Land Rover Sport holds the record at well over 9 minutes, any guesses at to what the VW ID-R is capable of? My guess is the number will start with a low 7: or possible a high 6: but have no data on this road, so anything is possible. Will we see a 5:? This is great to shift some attention to a relatively unknown hill climb to most of the world, looks like a beautiful place.
