Audi Sport TT Cup Heading to Nurburgring 24-Hour Race

Audi Sport TT Cup Heading to Nurburgring 24-Hour Race

The Audi Sport TT Cup will host two rounds in conjunction with the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race.

For the first time ever, the Audi one-make cup will participate with the 24-hour race at the Nurburgring, with one race held on May 27 and another on May 28. After a successful season opener at Hockenheim, Audi Sport TT Cup racers will hit the track during the supporting program of the Nurburgring 24 Hours, but they won’t be on the Nordschleife. Instead, the Audi TT Sport Cup will take place on the Grand Prix circuit.

What’s remarkable is that the average age of those competing in the Audi Sport TT Cup is only 20 years and the second-youngest driver is 16-year-old Sheldon van der Linde, who is the overall Cup leader.

The Audi TT Sport Cup events at the Nurburgring will start with a free practice on May 26, followed by a 30-minute qualifying session. The first race will start on Friday at 11:55 AM local time and race two will begin at 9:55 AM.
