With a Audi Sport TT Cup we have found an sparkling approach. The TT is going to disturb fans and drivers.”

In a 2015 season, during any of 6 DTM events in Germany and adjacent countries, dual races of a Audi Sport TT Cup are planned. quattro GmbH will mainly ready and margin a 24 cars. Six cockpits will be indifferent for changing guest drivers, while meddlesome drivers can request worldwide for a other 18 places on a grid during effective immediately. The multi-stage preference routine will take place in tighten team-work with a Audi pushing experience.

You immediately feel that you’re sitting in an Audi and commend a tighten reciprocity with a brand’s other competition cars.”
The intensely light physique of a third TT era with a intelligent element brew of steel and aluminum provides an ideal bottom for a competition car. The four-cylinder TFSI and a six-speed S tronic were adopted from a prolongation indication scarcely unchanged. An active differential that is electronically non-static from a cockpit ensures optimal traction during a front axle.

We’re regulating facilities from a Audi R8 LMS ultra, such as a Audi PS1 Safety Seat.”

The leader of a new Audi Sport TT Cup can demeanour brazen to receiving support in Audi’s successful GT3 sports automobile program. A successive graduation to a DTM or a WEC with Audi is another dream of many immature competition drivers. “Audi entirely strong on top-flight racing for a prolonged time,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich. “The Audi R8 LMS in 2008 was a initial competition automobile we privately grown for use by patron teams. With a Audi Sport TT Cup, quattro GmbH now also offers a event to enter racing with Audi.”
