BTCC: Rob Austin Racing Audi eager to do well at Oulton Park

By Tarek Ramchani

Rob Austin and Will Bratt had a very difficult weekend with their Audi A4 NGTC cars at Thruxton last time out. You can read our report of the third BTCC meeting right HERE.

The WIX Racing backed Audi A4 proved to be very good, as seen at Brands Hatch with storming performances from Rob Austin. Now after two disappointing rounds, the team is eager to fight back and battle for the top spots. The next round on the BTCC calender is at Oulton Park. A challenging track but very different from the penalizing Thruxton circuit which emphasized the lack of top speed for the A4s.

Rob Austin, the team owner and driver of the #13 Audi A4, had a chat with our friends from BTCC Crazy about the upcoming round at Oulton Park.

"Our sponsor for this year WIX have been amazing as they have given us the platform to compete for the full season. However we don’t have the big budgets of Honda and MG to go out and test when needs be. We have to count the cost of things so we will try get some development on both cars and roll into Oulton nearer to the front than we have done the past few meetings." (quotes sourced from
