The Audi Sport TT Cup in 2015 is starting as part of the supporting program of the DTM – the most popular motorsport platform in Germany and one of the most prestigious racing series worldwide.
The three leading German premium manufacturers – Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz – are involved in the DTM. 70,000 spectators on average attended the races in 2014. In more than 150 countries the DTM can be watched live or in recordings, in Germany on ARD.
The heart of the DTM beats in Germany, with races at Hockenheim, at the Nürburgring, the Norisring, the Lausitzring and at Oschersleben. But the series is internationally renowned as well. 2015 will see drivers from 13 nations on the grid and, in addition to six German races, there are rounds in the Netherlands, in Austria and Russia.
Audi has been involved in the DTM with a factory-backed commitment since 2004. In Mattias Ekström (2004 and 2007), Timo Scheider (2008 and 2009), Martin Tomczyk (2011) and Mike Rockenfeller (2013), the brand with the four rings provided DTM Champions in six out of the past eleven years. With three consecutive Championship titles in 2007, 2008 and 2009 Audi is also the first and so far only manufacturer in the DTM to have achieved a title hat-trick.
The new Audi Sport TT Cup makes it possible for young race drivers to enter the world of the DTM. They can make a name for themselves in front of the DTM officials and meet the DTM stars at joint press meetings, VIP events and autograph sessions.
All twelve races can be watched via live stream on www.audi-motorsport.com.
