Default VW retains ABT Schaeffler team for 2017-18 Formula E season

After pullling out of enduro racing last year in favor of Formula E(electric) campaigning, Volkswagen announced its factory works team for the racing series. VW will retain its current team -- Abt Schaeffler -- as the factory works unit.

One of the major fallouts of Volkswagen’s Dieselgate scandal was the automaker’s withdrawal from enduro racing – Le Mans, Sebring, and others. The automaker also pulled its support of factory works teams in other forms of competition. The move was made as part of Volkswagen’s belt-tightening last year. The carmaker made significant adjustments to its spending plans as it girded for the inevitable fallout of Dieselgate. In the U.S. alone, the emissions scandal has cost VW the better part of $25 billion, while the tote sheet in Europe remains open.

Dieselgate’s ultimate impact still unknown
