Gallery: Audi cars at the Rechbergrennen

By Johan Laubscher

The Rechberg Hillclimb was held in Austria last weekend, the “Hill Climb Grand Prix of Austria”. The event was part of the FIA Hillclimb Championship and a number of Audi cars were entered.

The most notable Audi entry this weekend was the return of Vláďa Vitver and his modified ABT-Audi TT-R. Vitver had suffered a substantial crash during testing last year and this was the first appearance of the car after an extensive rebuild and further modification. The 2012 testing crash can be seen HERE.

The other Audi entries were spearheaded by Austrian Hillclimb regular, Andreas Marko, and his Audi A4 STW. An Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 replica, an Audi Coupe, a modified Audi S2 and an Audi 90 sedan also competed.

These photos are from our friends at, who had a number of photographers on site to provide excellent coverage of the event.
