VLN: S.Pace Racing steps up to SP3T with two Audi TT RS cars

By Johan Laubscher

S.Pace Racing has upped its campaign for the 2015 VLN Endurance Series by adding two new vehicles to its arsenal. The German team has acquired two of the special VLN Audi TT RS cars built by Audi Sport customer racing and Raeder Motorsport.

Both of the Audi TT RS cars are fitted with 2.0 four cylinder turbocharged engines and will be competing in the SP3T class of the VLN. The driver combinations are Matthias and Thomas Wasel joined by Markus Löhnert and Elmar Deegener. The cars were tested for the first time at Hockenheim towards the end of February.

The team will be running a total of four cars. Its two new Audi TT RS cars will be joined by the team's older Audi TTS and an Opel Astra Cup.

All four of the cars took part in the recent VLN test day at the Nürburgring. The new Audi TT RS cars were in silver (TT RS #21) and black (TT RS #20) liveries, along with their older TTS (#19).

The VLN Endurance Series will be getting underway with round one at the Nürburgring on 28 March.
