The two-time DTM Champions Mattias Ekström and Timo Scheider, as well as the Le Mans winners Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer, were guests at the traditional Audi Night at the hotel ‘Zur Tenne’ in Kitzbühel on Friday night. At the social opening event of the 75th Hahnenkamm Weekend, they met with Rupert Stadler, Chairman of Audi’s Management Board, and Luca de Meo, Member of Audi’s Management Board for Marketing, among others. Before the British-Lebanese pop star Mika enthralled the audience, Ekström and skiing star Felix Neureuther recalled the events of the new Audi quattro challenge in front of an audience of some 370 guests. The day before, the slalom star had taken the wheel of Ekström’s Audi S1 EKS RX. With instructions provided by the Swede who had won his home round in the FIA Rallycross World Championship in the S1 EKS RX last year, Neureuther had enthusiastically drifted across icy terrain and gotten a first-hand impression of the superiority of quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
