Successful assessment of the first half of the 2015 Audi Sport TT Cup: The new Audi one-make cup captivates thousands of fans at the race tracks and in live streaming with thrilling motorsport. The prominent guest entrants are enthusiastic about their racing commitments in the DTM’s supporting program as well.
Six races, six winners. Halfway through the Audi Sport TT Cup, a third of the 18 permanent entrants have already won a race. This proves that the Audi one-make cup stands for balanced and competitive motorsport. Its international field has high relevance as well. Drivers from six nations have entered their names on the winners’ list: Marc Coleselli (A), Dennis Marschall (D), Shaun Thong (HK), Nicolaj Møller Madsen (DK), Jan Kisiel (PL) and Alexis van de Poele (B).
“The young drivers have been doing a great job right from the beginning and delivering tremendous motorsport to the spectators,” says Project Leader Rolf Michl. “The season opener at the Hockenheimring was an outstanding premiere and the feedback from members of the media and the fans was very positive. The subsequent races at the Norisring and at Spielberg gave us a lot of highs too – as well as a setback with the severe accident at the Red Bull Ring.”
The second race at Spielberg had been started behind the safety car due to heavy rain and given the all clear by race control after four laps. Due to the poor visibility an accident occurred under green flags involving six drivers – including Levin Amweg. The Swiss sustained a back injury and had to be hospitalized. “We’re wishing Levin all the best and hope that he’ll soon be able to race again,” says Michl. “We’re carefully analyzing the accident. We can already say this much today: the safety concept of our car functioned.”
