Aditya-Patel

 

Audi R8 LMS Cup title contender, Aditya Patel made a successful debut in the Audi Sport TT Cup at Germany’s famed Nurburgring circuit at the weekend, joining fellow Audi Sport customer racing Asia driver, Shaun Thong of Hong Kong, who has been contesting a full season in the new series.

 

Patel, 27, was entered as one of five guest entrants and an impressive performance saw him take class wins in both races. Lining up on the fifth row of the grid for the start of the 8-lap opening race, Patel drove superbly to cross the line in fifth. For the start of the 16-lap Race 2, Patel had his work cut out from his sixth row grid position, but fought through the field to finish sixth.



Thong’s performance sees him lie ninth in the championship classification with two rounds to go of the inaugural Audi Sport TT Cup season remaining. The 19-year-old showed notable consistency by collecting points in nine out of the ten races so far as well as a spectacular double pole and victory at the Norisring earlier this year.



Joining Patel on the podium after Race 1 were former rally pro Niki Schelle  and journalist, Guido Naumann of Germany, while Playmate Doreen Seidel and Matthias Malmedie took second and third after race 2.

Audi To Celebrate Ten Years Of TDI At Le Mans

Audi has made history at Le Mans. In 2006, the premium brand became the first manufacturer to win what is arguably the world’s toughest endurance race with diesel power. 2016 marks the tenth anniversary of this achievement. Today, the TDI engine is more efficient than ever before and part of a highly complex diesel-hybrid powertrain. Never before has an Audi LMP1 race car been as powerful and fuel-efficient as the current Audi R18.
