Audi has established a new one-make racing series entitled “Audi Sport TT Cup” which will be organized starting 2015 at each of the six DTM events held in Germany and neighboring countries. Two races will be held at these events where 24 cars will be fielded, with six of them being reserved for rotating guest drivers while the other 18 are available for those who fill out an application at the following website: www.audi-motorsport.com. The vehicle that they will be using comes with a more aerodynamic body kit featuring a large rear wing, bigger fender flares and a front splitter made from carbon fiber.
The Audi TT race car also has matrix LED headlights, roll cage, digital instrument cluster and a centrally-positioned exhaust pipe. Inside the cabin it also benefits from a PS1 safety seat taken from the R8 LMS ultra along with a fire extinguishing system. Power comes from a four-cylinder 2.0-liter TFSI engine rated at 310 HP and more than 400 Nm. It comes with a push-to-pass function bumping output for a limited amount of time by 30 HP.
Tipping the scales at 1,125 kg (2,480 lbs), the Audi TT race car has been equipped with an electronically variable active differential while the engine’s power is sent to the wheels with help from a 6-speed S tronic gearbox.
