2013 International Superstars Series calendar

By Tarek Ramchani

Audi dominated the International Superstars Series this year with the brand new Audi RS 5 quattro from Audi Sport Italia. Three cars were entered and run by three different teams. In the end, Johan Kristoffersson was crowned the series champion at the season finale held at Pergusa with his KMS run machine.

The series saw very impressive growth during the last couple of years with some great names and brands joining, many with factory supported efforts. Now the series has just unveiled its 2013 calendar, with eight rounds planned. While strongly being an Italian based touring car championship, the series will visit no less than five European countries. The season will kick off, as usual, at Monza. The finale is yet to be announced and will be at an Italian circuit. For 2013 the International Superstars will be joined by its sister GT Sprint Championship, wherein the Audi R8 LMS ultra did very well with Audi Sport Italia during the final round.

Audi Sport Italia, the team behind the RS 5 quattro project, will be back to defend the 2012 crown. At the moment there are no official announcements regarding the drivers and teams.
