Volkswagen Golf (1) General Information

Note: This car has started life as a group2 car. Volkswagen wasn't very much into the project, but it was a famous car for privateers. Its career started slowly, but it was heavily in use when the new categories came into play. Therefore the MkI Golf (or Golf I as Volkswagen doesn't really use the Mark marks) was straight transferred from group2 into groupA. For more details and the datasheet, please look at the group2 version, there were no changes. OK, the engine displacement was increased from 1598cc to 1781cc, that however did not strictly coincide with the change to groupA. But as the road car gained 2BHP by this, in groupA it made hardly a noteworthy difference. In groupA only the GTI version competed, the homologation of the group2 diesel was not transferred.
