An Audi R8 LMS sporting an unusual livery is on the grid in the DMV GTC racing series this year. Rutronik commissioned artist Rudi Fielitz to design an Art Car. As a distributor, Rutronik is the connecting link between customers and manufacturers. The Distribution Art Car was created as a joint project involving 46 manufacturers from the electronics industry. The conspicuous GT3 race car attracts attention to the cause supported by Bundesverband Herzkranke Kinder e.V. (Federal Association of Children Suffering from a Heart Condition). A total amount of 9,000 euros was donated to this non-profit organization while 25 children suffering from a heart condition witnessed the first race of the Distribution Art Car at the Hockenheimring. Tommy Tulpe and Fabian Plentz won the Dunlop 60 race in the DMV GTC in the car.
