Audi with new motorsport strategy: Formula E instead of WEC
- New focus on electric race cars in FIA Formula E
- Audi CEO Stadler: “We’re going to contest the race for the future on electric power”
- DTM commitment unchanged, job guarantee for motorsport employees
Audi is realigning its motorsport strategy. The premium brand will terminate its FIA WEC commitment, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, at the end of the 2016 season. Instead Audi is taking up a factory-backed commitment in the all-electric Formula E racing series.
