After participating in the International GT Open in Europe last year with Team Novadriver, managing five podium finishes which included a win, Aditya Patel will be participating in the Audi R8 LMS Cup Asia 2015. Backed by Audi India, the young racer from Chennai will begin his fourth year with the four ringed German manufacturer. Based in China, the Audi R8 LMS Cup also travels to Korea, Japan, Malaysia and Taiwan, acting as a support race to GT Asia and the World Endurance Championship. JK Tyres, Amante and Jubilant Motorworks will also be supporting the fast man in his fast endeavors.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Joe King, Head, Audi India said, “This is a proud moment for Audi India. We are confident that Aditya’s talent combined with his technical capabilities will put the team up as a strong contender in the challenge. We aim to further consolidate our strong association with motorsport and will continue to nurture Aditya’s promising career.”
“I’m really happy to be a part of the R8 LMS Cup this year. The championship has been growing steadily and now we see many Asian nations backing top drivers from their respective countries to participate in this series. It’s great to have support from Audi Sport as well as Audi China to be a part of this series. I would like to thank Audi India, JK Tyres, Amante and Jubilant Motorworks for their long standing support and I am definitely looking forward to another competitive season of racing. I’m working together with Audi to find more sponsors this year to be able to do many more races including the 24 hours of Nurburgring and the 24 hours of Spa,” said Audi India race talent-Aditya Patel.
We at Motoroids wish him all the best and hope to see him at the top of the podium, at the top-most level of motorsport, as the tri-color unfolds and the Indian national anthem plays in the background.
