You’re the new sporting director at Audi race experience. What are your responsibilities?
“Obviously, I’m not entirely unfamiliar with the Audi race experience. I’ve been working as an instructor for Audi’s large number of sporting customers ever since the program was incepted. I’m delighted that in 2012 Audi entrusted me to run the entire program. My task now is to offer our customers a perfect environment with a professional race team and to ensure an unforgettable experience for them. Our two new Audi R8 LMS ultra cars and the Nurburgring give us optimum prerequisites for doing so.”
You’re offering the sportiest drivers of the brand as many as five opportunities for a racing experience at the Nurburgring. What has been the response to this offer?
“Even before publishing the calendar we’d received numerous inquiries for this year. That’s why only single places are left for VLN races number 4 and 7. The 24-hour race at the Nurburgring will again be the pinnacle of the season. Those who wish to drive with us should decide quickly.”
Who are the professional racers that will be assisting your participants at these racing events?
“This year we’re again working with Florian Gruber, Frank Schmickler and Marco Werner. Our program participants keep telling us that they’re thrilled by this concept and that they can feel the progress they’re making with respect to their own driving style. Conversely, our pros enjoy passing on their knowledge to Audi’s sporty drivers.”
