The Audi TT’s history with motorsport began in 2000, two years after the first-generation coupe was introduced. The TT debuted in Germany’s DTM series (German Touring Car Championship) and spent no less than four years fighting against race-spec versions of the Mercedes-Benz CLK and the Opel Astra. The Audi TT met success for the
first and only time in 2002, when Laurent Aiello clinched the driver’s championship. Audi, however, failed to win the constructor’s championship that year. During its lifetime, the TT was also raced in the Grand-Am KONI Sports Car Challenge and the SCCA World Challenge race series. As we venture into the 2015 model year, Audi is launching yet another race program for the TT, this time in the form of a single-make series.
