    Current World Rally Championship title holder, Volkswagen has confirmed that it will enter the new FIA-sanctioned World Rallycross Championship, which gets underway this year and has already snagged top drivers Jacques Villeneuve and Ken Block. And they won’t be going it alone, as it will be competing together with Swedish rallycross outfit Marklund Motorsport. The two have signed a three-year deal, with Marklund set to use Volkswagen’s successful Polo platform for its new rallycross car. Marklund ranks among the most ambitious independent teams and has single-handedly developed the Polo for World RX use.
