VW continues to invest in the future of motorsport in SA

Volkswagen has established a specialised Motorsport Academy to invest in the future of motorsport locally.

'The lack of interest in local motorsport has seen the sport dwindle down from what it once was', writes Charlen Raymond.

WATCH: Oops! This self-driving classic Mustang botches hillclimb, crashes into wall as thousands watched during the Goodwood FOS

It's back to the drawing board for a self-driving classic Ford Mustang as it was captured serving all over the place during a hillclimb demonstration at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (FOS) in England.

While an autonomous muscle car sounds great on paper, it hasn’t quite worked out for the team behind the failed Goowood FOS run.

Developed in partnership by Siemens and the Cranfield University, the car was unveiled earlier in July 2018. 

A video shows the botched run as the self-driving Mustang required human intervention several times during its climb, swerving around and hitting a crash barrier.
