At this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show held at Birmingham’s NEC in the UK, Volkswagen introduced the new Caddy Racer.
Set to compete in the commercial vehicle championship, with the company’s Commercial Vehicle’s director Simon Elliott once again behind
the wheel, the 2011 Volkswagen Caddy Racer will align at the grid at  Oulton Park on April 25th featuring a distinctive white and orange livery with RAC continuing to be the main sponsor for this year.
The 2011 Volkswagen Caddy Racer is based on the 2010 Caddy and features a series of upgrades in order to improve performance. As opposed to the previous Caddy Racer, this new version is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine which is channelling 270 PS to the front wheels via a 6-speed quick shift gearbox.
The Caddy’s rear axle has also received a multi-link system like the one on the Golf R, and when commenting on the new Racer said "The new Caddy has started life strongly since its launch and
has already started winning awards, so the Caddy Racer will hopefully
add to the trophy cabinet!  We learnt a lot through the developments
made with the original Caddy Racer, and initial tests with the new van
have been extremely promising.  This really is a clear demonstration of
Brilliant Made Better – I just can’t wait to get back out on track."
