"Poldi" storms the Polo R WRC - football professional Lukas Podolski came, saw and was shaken tremendously. The soccer player changed sports for an afternoon and took a seat next to Rally-Ace and the second of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), Volkswagen works driver Jari-Matti Latvala (FIN). Now fans can buy this actually priceless experience, a taxi ride in the World Rally Car from Wolfsburg and a helmet signed by "Poldi" - and do something for a good cause.
After the fast taxi ride over a total of 18 kilometers in the 315 hp Volkswagen Polo R WRC, Lukas Podolski, player from FC Arsenal, looked surprisingly relaxed: “I love the speed, so I wasn't afraid. You will be shaken like in the washing drum - right, left, up, down. This is absolute high-performance sport, I have great respect for that. ”
A helmet like the one worn by Lukas Podolski, a Peltor Pro Rally Helmet G78, is now being autographed for a good cause. But that's not all: the highest bidder also wins a ride as a passenger in the Volkswagen Polo R WRC. The proceeds from the auction go to the Lukas Podolski Foundation. The foundation supports children and young people with the help of sports and educational projects. The projects pursue integrative goals and support socially disadvantaged children in Germany and Poland. The ride in the Polo R WRC has been auctioned at the eBay online auction house since Thursday.
