VW developing TC4-A Vento 1.8 TSI race car

  •  

Volkswagen Motorsport India is developing the TC4-A Vento 1.8 TSI race car for its customer sport program. The new race cars are being built to comply with the TC4-A regulations set by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI).

The TC4-A regulations are based on the current Indian Touring Car (ITC) regulations. The race cars are required to have turbocharged engines no larger than 2,000 cc and a turbo inlet restrictor of 30 mm. The minimum weight of the race car is restricted to 1,150 kg.

The TC4-A Vento race car will be powered by a 1.8-litre TSI engine mated to a 3MO sequential gearbox with a manual gearshift lever. As part of the testing phase, two cars will be driven by Karthik Tharani and Ishaan Dodhiwala in the 2018 National Championship season.
