We recently wrote about Aditya Patel being drafted by Audi India to race with team Pro Handicap e.V. in the VLN Endurance Series.
Aditya drove the Audi TTS to the limit in the SP4T class, which is basically for turbo charged engines between 2000-2600cc. “Got some fast cars there!” Aditya informed us.
The were 5 entrants in the class, the rest of them with an Audi TT RS, while Patel had to make do with the #279 Audi TTS.
Aditya qualified 151st ( listing entrants from all classes) and managed to put in 4 rounds of the ‘ring. The weather wasn’t too kind the next day and the team decided to pull out again after 4 rounds to save the car. While the team posted a fastest time of 10:28.050 during qualifying, the conditions were so bad that they could only manage 11:09.631 in the race!
Now we wonder if Patel is going to race in the next round of the VLN, the ADAC ACAS H&R-Cup on the 28th of April, or if he’s going to gun straight for the 24 Hours Nürburgring starting on the 17th of May. We will keep you posted!
Here’s Riot Engine wishing the young lad from Chennai the very best!
