For over ten years, AUDI AG’s motorsport exploits have been closely linked to one name: Dr Wolfgang Ullrich (55). Since November 1993, the native of Vienna has been directing the motorsport activities of the premium brand from Ingolstadt in his capacity as Head of Audi Sport. Under his direction Audi simultaneously won the Touring Car Championships in seven countries, clinched as many as five victories in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, seven consecutive victories in the 12 Hours of Sebring (USA) and in 2004, the year of the brand’s return to the DTM as a manufacturer, all three titles in Europe’s most popular touring car series straight away. The Audi A4 quattro, the Audi R8 and the Audi A4 DTM represent three of Audi Sport’s most successful projects launched during his watch. And the new Audi R10 TDI diesel-powered sportscar has proved its race-winning qualities already!
