Audi Sport TT Cup: Junior Talents Prove Prowess at Hockenheim Test


With the start of the 2016 Audi Sport TT Cup less than a month away, series competitors headed to Hockenheimring last weekend for one last test before the championship gets underway on May 6th.  Completing a total of 955 laps with more than 2,700 miles logged, the young talents were able to supply engineers and mechanics with valuable information pertaining to their desired suspension setup and overall reliability.

After the test sessions, Audi Sport TT Cup Project Leader Philipp Mondelaers noted that times between cars were incredibly close, and that first-time competitors were “instantly among the from runners”, a testament to the level of talent competing this year.  After more than 37 hours of aggregate track time and zero retirements, we’d have to agree.

As with last year’s season, the 2016 Audi Sport TT Cup will be contested on DTM weekends, following the German Touring Cars across Europe for seven weekends.  The first race takes place in just a few week’s time at Hockenheimring on the weekend of May 6th-8th.
