The Audi Sport TT Cup is the perfect way to get started in the motorsport world of the brand with the four rings. The international field of budding young drivers can make their mark within the supporting program for the DTM and 24 hour race at the Nürburgring and in doing so set the foundation for their subsequent career.
Seven instead of six race weekends were on the program this year. With Zandvoort (NL) and Budapest (H), there were two new and challenging venues beeing part of the DTM. Furthermore, the races in the supporting program of the Nürburgring 24 Hours were a very special highlight.
The Audi Sport TT Cup 2016 starter field was a colourful mix. A total of 125 male and female drivers representing 36 nations applied for a starting place. Sixteen international talents were selected and received the chance to demonstrate their skills in the Audi one-make cup. On top of this at every race came a maximum of eight changing guest starters, including national and international celebrities.
For the Audi Sport TT Cup, Audi Sport GmbH developed a visually and technically attractive racing sportscar – the Audi TT cup. It established itself immediately in the debut season and benefits from the technical innovations of the production model – especially in the area of lightweight design and construction.
The race version of the Audi TT produces 228 kW (310 hp) while weighing only 1,125 kilogrammes. The two-litre four cylinder TFSI engine originates almost entirely without modifications from the production line. By using the so called Push-to-pass function, the power is increased briefly by 22 kW (30 hp).
