(photo, below), Team Infineon Abt Sportsline will be aiming to go
one better in 2004: the drivers for the two Abt-Audi TT-Rs will
be Christian Abt / Mattias Ekström / Fredrik Ekblom and Patrick
Huisman / Frank Stippler / Karl Wendlinger.
Abt Sportsline is currently building up the two race cars for this
June’s race, chassis that are based on the 2003 DTM car. Testing
is already taking place in Spain this week, with an existing chassis.
“We have assembled
a powerful squad with a mixture of seasoned campaigners and youngsters
for the 24 Hour race at the Nürburgring,” says Head of
Audi Motorsport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich.
test programme is planned for the coming weeks. It’s going
to be a very interesting second weekend in June.
