Tanner Foust tackles winter driving in the 2022 Golf R and 2021 ID.4

Mar 22, 2021

Volkswagen R ambassador Tanner Foust puts the next-generation Golf R to the test at Smithers Winter Test Center in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula alongside the all-new ID.4.

Foust is a stunt driver for film and television, as well as a professional racing driver for Volkswagen. Among his many accomplishments, Tanner is a three-time U.S. champion in the sport of Rallycross and a two-time winner of the Formula Drift championship. He’s mastered the art of controlling cars through all types of slippery conditions, and in fact began his career as an ice driving instructor.


Tanner Foust has some words of wisdom for any Volkswagen owner driving during the cold-weather months: “Respect the conditions.”

At Smithers, Foust made use of the new 4Motion® system with torque vectoring in the Mk8 Golf R. Read more about that system here.

Earlier in the year, fresh from a driving demonstration at the Taos Ski Valley ski resort in Taos, N.M., he offered six helpful tips on how to drive in winter conditions.
