VW’s American plant celebrated hitting the half-million mark by producing a white Limited Edition Passat. This value-oriented model with turbocharged four-cylinder power, backup camera and alloy wheels is geared toward revving up interest in VW’s midsize sedan.
I fibbed. I drove VW’s TSI (turbo gas) Golf SportWagon to GingerMan Raceway (South Haven, Michigan) track lessons.
Hosted by the Midwest Automotive Media Association, CGI Motorsports and FCA’s Dodge division, your correspondent paired with instructor and illustrator Robert Ashley. He taught me how to draw lines with a 707-hp supercharged V-8 crayon or Hellcat.
Robert, who entered motor-sports during his 60s, proved one can learn new tricks. By my final session, my brain, eyes, hands and feet pulled off smooth moves at triple-digit speeds.
