Rob Austin Racing returns Audi to British Touring Car Championship

. Monday, December 13, 2010

Thanks to Rob Austin Racing, Audi will again compete in the British Touring Car Championships. Confirmed to enter two Audi A4 "Next Generation Touring Cars," Austin's choice to field the four rings marks the first time Audi has entered the BTCC since 1998. Austin notes that the cars are on order from GPR Motorsport Ltd. set for delivery in early March 2011, just in time for the start of the 2011 season.

Commenting on the move, Rob Austin said, “This is a great step for us and a fantastic challenge. We are convinced that the NGTC concept is going to make the BTCC even more competitive and exciting and that the Audi will be a race winner.”

Austin notes that the photo is purely an artists interpretation of what their 2011 BTCC Audi A4 will look like. Render or not, we're more than excited to finally see an A4 back in touring car livery for the BTCC! Also, for any British touring car racers out there, Rob Austin is still looking for drivers, saying the team "will welcome enquiries from interested parties."
