Be a pilot officer of a brand in the VAG Group has advantages and is all of a sudden you may find yourself with an invitation to
compete far from your category in a car of other manufacturers
this giant car. In the storyline of the first season,
the Audi TT Cup opens its doors with two guest drivers, and in this case
about two pilots competing for Volkswagen away from the circuits.
Andreas Mikkelsen will play the first round of the Audi TT Cup at Hockenheim
like what will the pilot of the united States Scott Speed.
During the first year of the Audi TT Cup was
constant invite notable riders with past or present in any of the marks of the
VAG group. In this way, during 2015 we could see in the different rounds with the Audi TT to
pilots, world-class, as Jordi Gené, Tanner Foust, Toomas
Heikkinen, René Rast, Rahel Frey or Frank Biela, among many others. For this new season,
the trend is repeated with Andreas Mikkelsen to compete with the Polo R WRC in the World Rally. For his part, Scott Speed is the current champion
the Global Rallycross with a Beetle of Andretti.
All in all, will be a great opportunity for Andreas Mikkelsen
discover the circuits and piloting an Audi TT coupe that is radically
other than to its Polo R WRC. The pilot Norwegian will join as well to a grill formed
14 young riders who seek to bring relief to the Polish Jan Kisiel, winner of
the first edition of this cup-brand. Eight of these pilots are ‘rookies’,
so who will face the same premiere that Andreas Mikkelsen who is
fourth in the WRC with two podiums and that still has fresh his first victory
in the World. It was in the Rally RACC Catalunya 2015.
