This year, high-caliber guest drivers are racing again in the Audi Sport TT Cup. At the Hockenheimring, two international motorsport stars battled each other. Scott Speed (USA), a former Formula One driver, took positions seven and eleven, which earned him victory in the guest entrants’ classification. The reigning title winner in the Global Rallycross Championship (GRC) won against Andreas Mikkelsen (N), a Volkswagen factory driver in the FIA World Rally Championship.
In the overall classification of the Audi Sport TT Cup, van der Linde, after the first of seven race weekends, has a tally of 50 points, leading with a 15-point advantage, trailed by Dennis Marschall (D), Hofbauer and Joonas Lappalainen (both 34 points). Round two of the Audi Sport TT Cup will be held as part of the program for the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring from May 26 to 28.
