Audi to mark 3 milestones at Goodwood fest
Ingolstadt, June 26, 2014
Audi is celebrating three major anniversaries at the Festival of Speed from June 27 to 29 in Goodwood and, to mark all three occasions, is bringing its three iconic motor racing vehicles to England.
The German automaker will showcase the Audi Type C “Alpine Victor”, which secured the first motor racing triumph. One hundred years ago the 35 hp open-topped touring car won the International Austrian Alpine Trial.
Eighty years ago, the Auto Union Silver Arrow models made their racing debut, which Audi Tradition commemorates by showing the Auto Union Type C racing car from 1936.
The trio is completed by the Audi 90 quattro IMSA-GTO, which was entered in the North American race series 25 years ago. Le Mans winners Frank Biela and André Lotterer will be driving for Audi Tradition.
Each year, the world’s biggest event in historic motorsport attracts some 160,000 visitors from all over the world. Audi Tradition is featuring the Audi Type C “Alpine Victor” for the first time at the Festival of Speed. – TradeArabia News Service
