Audi Sport TT Cup

Audi Sport TT Cup


The Audi Sport TT Cup is the perfect entryway into the motorsports world at the brand with the four rings. Within the framework of the DTM the international young drivers are able to present and recommend themselves for further careers. This year, seven racing weekends are on the calendar.

The junior racing series starts within the framework of the DTM – the most popular motorsports-platform in Germany and one of the most prestigious racing series of the world. The DTM-season kick-off is going to take place on the first weekend of May in Hockenheim. The second racing weekend on the Nürburgring is going to be a special highlight, because it takes places within the framework of the 24h-race. Just like before, two races of 30 minutes each are going to be driven at every event.

The racing version of the Audi TT has an output of 228 kW (310 HP) at a weight of only 1.125kg and profits from the technical innovations of the production model – especially regarding lightweight construction. All 24 race cars are supplied and prepared centrally by the Audi Sport GmbH – this guarantees equal opportunities.

More than just a coach: Markus Winkelhock in the Audi Sport TT Cup – The experienced Audi driver is not only on the track as driver but also as coach in the Audi Sport TT Cup.

The Swabian is able to do this. Not least because of his successes. Winkelhock used to drive Formula 1 and collected leading kilometers on the Nürburgring at the Grand Prix of Europe in 2007. He started at the DTM for Audi, won a race as a guest driver at the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup and is successfully involved in Audi’s GT-program – victories at both 24h-races on the Nürburgring and in Spa speak for themselves.

As coach in the Audi Sport TT Cup, Winkelhock is able to impart his experiences from almost 20 years of racing on the young drivers. He excels at his new role. “I watch everyone carefully and give as many tips as possible”, the expert explains.
