RCCO: Not Audi Team tv racing’s day at the Shell Grand Prix Hamburg

By Johan Laubscher

The third round of the 2014 rallye racing Carrera Cup (RCCO) Slotcar Championship was the Shell Grand Prix Hamburg held on Wednesday.

Audi Team tv racing again entered two Audi R8 LMS ultra slotcars. The #1 Schaeffler R8 LMS ultra was piloted by Thomas Voigt, alongside his teammate, Jan Hennen, with the #55 Audi.

Jan Hennen qualified fourth and by the end of the evening he finished seventh overall. Thomas Voigt unfortunately finished fourteenth, after dropping out during the heats as a consequence of a loose control cord.

Round four, the Audi R8 Cup, will be held at Oschersleben on 17 May during the weekend of the second DTM round.

Slotcar racing is a very popular sport amongst many of the Audi Sport personnel, many of whom take part in this series. It is always great to see Audis competing in motorsport, including the world of slotcar racing.
