Audi Sport TT Cup finale: Three-way battle for the championship
The final round of the maiden season of Audi Sport TT Cup will be held this weekend at the Hockenheimring. Three drivers are still in the game for the first championship title in the new Audi one-make cup – Jan Kisiel, Nicolaj Møller Madsen and Dennis Marschall.
21-year-old Polish driver Kisiel has the best chances in the title race. With 199 points and five wins so far, the young driver from Warsaw is leading the drivers’ standings by 35 points, ahead of Møller Madsen (164 points) and Marschall (163.5 points). A maximum of 50 points will be awarded in Hockenheim, so Kisiel only has to finish one of the two final races in fourth place to secure the title.
As is common in Audi Sport TT Cup, we will see interesting line-up of guest entrants. The strongest names are two Audi factory drivers from Le Mans squad Marco Bonanomi and René Rast. Two brand-new champions from VW one-make cups will be competing in the guest drivers’ classification as well – Briton Aaron Mason secured the championship title in the VW Racing Cup Great Britain and South African Jeffrey Kruger won the title in the VW Golf Cup Poland.
The field of the guest entrants will be completed by former freestyle skier and X Games gold medalist Jon Olsson, as well as racing-experienced journalists Alberto Sabbatini and Reiner Kuhn. Audi Sport TT Cup track commentator Patrick Simon will be driving another 310-hp Cup racer and provide a running commentary of the races from the cockpit.
