ABSTRACT
The article reports on Volkswagen Group, an automobile manufacturer, which has postponed its plans to enter the World Rally Championship (WRC), while it has decided to participate in the 2010 Dakar Rally. Volkswagen's chairman Martin Winterkorn says that the victory of the company's racing team in 2009 Dakar Rally shows that the company's brand is now shining even brighter, and therefore, the company's participation in the event is a good investment so it will again compete in 2010.
