Inaugural season of Audi Sport TT Cup will be continued on 12-13 September at Oschersleben, during a big racing weekend together with DTM, Porsche Carrera Cup Deuschland and ADAC Formel 4. Like in the previous races of this new one-make championship, we will see six prominent guest entrants at the wheels of Audi TT Cup together with all the regular drivers, five of them for the first time.
Following rallycross drivers, noblemen and ski superstars, guest drivers at Oschersleben will be three veterans and legends of motorsport (Frank Biela, Uwe Alzen and Harald Grohs), former IndyCar driver Alex Lloyd and TV presenter Tim Schrick. Biggest star of them all is 51-year-old Biela, who won the 24h Le Mans five times and became DTM Champion in 1991.
Alzen’s track record includes a victory in the Spa 24 Hours and in the GT3 class at Le Mans. In addition, the now 48-year-old was on the top step of the podium in six DTM races. Harald Grohs won seven DTM rounds between 1984 and 1987. Furthermore, the 71-year-old competed in more than sixty 24-hour races. Tim Schrick was the 1998 Citroën Saxo Cup Champion and the overall winner of the VW New Beetle Cup in 2001. In addition, he contested several 24-hour races at the Nürburgring, clinching class victories in 2014 and 2015.
