Team Raeder Motorsport testing the TT RS DTM-racer at the Endurance Championship at the Nurburgring. The model may mark the return of a TT model for Audi Motorsport in DTM racing.
Last week Audi's Quattro GmbH division and Raeder Motorsport announced the Audi TT RS endurance racer which hinted at DTM return for an Audi Motorsport TT.
The TT RS was run by Raeder Motorsport at the Endurance Championship at the Nurburgring this weekend in the SP 4T class and the TT RS will continue racing on October 30 in the same event. The car was driven by five-time VLN winner Marc Hennerici (of Germany) along with Christopher Mies (also from Germany).
The TT RS DTM-racer was developed jointly by Quattro GmbH, Audi's Technical Development unit and Raeder Motorsport. It comes with a 2.5 liter, turbocharged 5-cylinder engine fitted with components from the Audi R8 LMS (LeMans Series).
