Audi Sport racing academy Established to Help Young Drivers

For a select few youngsters, Audi’s new Audi Sport racing academy has just made the road to a career in professional motorsport much easier. With the newly launched two-year program, Audi Sport will take on up to six people under the age of 25 and give them the training, tutoring and experience they need to perfect their driving style behind the wheel of numerous Audi RS and R models on tracks and facilities throughout Europe.

To get things started, Audi Sport has selected three subjects for their first class- 15 year old Hungarian Vivien Keszthelyi, and TT Cup drivers Sheldon van der Linde from South Africa and Nicklas Nielsen from Denmark.  If all goes according to plan, the three will compete in Audi R8 LMSs on a professional level in 2017.
