Philip Ellis has won the 2017 Audi Sport TT Cup title in the season’s finale at Hockenheimring. The 25-year-old Briton secured a title by winning the first race of the final round on Sunday morning, which he won after starting from pole. The Spaniard Mikel Azcona and the South African Keagan Masters completed a podium.
As Ellis extended a lead over Azcona to 28 points, the last race on Sunday afternoon was just a formality for him. In the second race, Ellis was on a pole again but Azcona won the race. Ellis was second, Drew Ridge was third.
