By Johan Laubscher

Audi Sport Italia has revealed the first driver of their 2014 EuroV8 Series campaign. Tomáš Kostka will be joining the Italian squad in an Audi RS 5 quattro.

The EuroV8 Series is a new Italian based series, which replaces the Superstars Series for 2014.

Audi Sport Italia’s Audi RS 5 quattro cars, that have dominated the previous two Superstars Series seasons, will again be out on track this year. 

One of these four cars will be entrusted to Tomáš Kostka from the Czech Republic, who will be joining Audi Sport Italia for the six round EuroV8 Series calendar.

Tomáš Kostka is no stranger to Audi race cars, as he has been in a variety of Audi A4 DTM cars since 2007. His highlight with Audi was when he competed in the 2009 DTM season, driving the #20 Audi A4 DTM R13 (2007) entered by Kolles Futurecom-BRT.
