VLN: Magenta Racing testing Audi TT RS at Ascari

By Johan Laubscher 

Magenta Racing from Finland was out testing a new Audi TT RS at Ascari in Spain this weekend. The team is busy preparing for the 2015 VLN Endurance Series, where it will be running the TT RS in the SP3T class.

Raeder Motorsport built this new Audi TT RS chassis towards the end of 2014 and the Nardo grey vehicle had its first roll-out test with Raeder during mid-December. It is similar to Raeder’s other VLN Audi TT RS cars fitted with a 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder engine.

It was a long wait for Magenta Racing’s first test session with the car, but it looked great circulating around a sunny Ascari circuit in Spain this weekend.

The 2015 VLN Endurance Series will get underway at the Nürburgring on 28 March.
