Perry Richardson - Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Driver - Infineon Raceway driving a DSR
This is a video of Perry passing 40 cars in 30 minutes. Perry qualifying time was DQ'ed due to excess noise and he had to start at the back of the pack. This is a cut down version of passing to fit on Youtube. The race was held on March 29th at Infineon Raceway and Perry is driving a "D" Sports Racer. Thanks to GoPro for the great camera. Perry will be racing in the Volkswagen Jetta TDI series in 2009.

By now youve probably caught word of Volkswagens Jetta TDI Cup. The company with the cutest anthropomorphic spokesbeetle has been slinging diesel-powered race cars around tracks all over the country for almost two years, and the series doesnt show any signs of letting up soon. The concept is simple take 30 or so 16-26 year old SCCA members, give them identically prepped Jetta TDIs that are owned and maintained by the good people at VW and let them go at it. Theres an agenda, of coruse: Germanys hoping the racers and their oil-burning steeds will help change American opinion of the fuel that Uncle Sam forgot. But who cares and who wouldnt want to get their mitts on one of these things for a lap or two?
