Is Audi coming back to DTM (German Touring Car Championships) racing with the TT RS?
This DTM-class Audi TT RS will be run by Raeder Motorsport in two test races this month. It is a race version of the TT RS the Raeder team developed in partnership with Audi's Technical Development and Quattro divisions.
The car features the same 2.5 liter, turbocharged 5-cylinder TFSI engine of the TT RS plus other components from the Audi R8 LMS (LeMans Series).
Raeder Motorsport already races an Audi A1 and a TT in the VLN Championship. The TT RS will be running in the SP 4T class at the Endurance Championship at the Nürburgring on October 16 and 30. The car will be driven by Marc Hennerici and Christopher Mies.
Audi last ran the TT in the DTM series between 2000 and 2003. This TT RS, given that it's being tested in endurance races, may just be DTM-ready.
