What? Racing a Jetta? Why? Because you can! This is just more proof that if you want to race, you can race. Yeah, there are some safety and tech requirements, but if you REALLY want to race, there are various avenues.
The Jetta GLI is now slouch racing in the Pirelli World Challenge TC class. A turbo charged, 2.0L 4 banger, pushing out 200+ HP engine, which is right in line with the rest of the cars in that series. In fact, as of this post, a Jetta GLI is currently in 5th place in the TC points standings.
And if you are so inclined, you can actually race the car pictured above. Part of the vehicle fleet from Go 4 IT Racing Schools.
