The Volkswagen ID.R has set the fifth sensational record of its short career. With a story which started on the 24th June 2018 at the legendary Pikes Peak (USA), Volkswagen once again demonstrated its expertise in the field of electro-mobility and in motorsport on the Tianmen Mountain Big Gate Road, China. Here Romain Dumas, driver of the legendary race car, set the first official record on the breath-taking road to “Heave’s Gate”.

The record drive Tianmen is a true pioneering feat that Roman Dumas mastered on 2 September 2019 in 7:38.585 minutes with the ID.R. The 99 extremely tight turns over 10.906 kilometres are not only among the most technically challenging road sections in the world, they also provide breath-taking pictures.
