Frank Stippler on Pole Position at Hockenheim

Frank Stippler will start the Audi TT Cup Race of Legends tomorrow from Pole Position.

The 42 year-old works driver for Audi beat namesake Frank Biela, while Le Mans record winner Tom Kristensen will start in third ahead of Filipe Albuerquerque.

Stephane Ortelli had a few technical problems with his car, so he didn’t get to do as many laps as the others but still managed to do fifth fastest time.

Marco Werner got in just in front of the fastest lady in the field, Rahel Frey. Dindo Capello took P8 ahead of Le Mans colleagues Lucas Luhr and Lucas di Grassi.

Marcel Fässler were 11th fastest ahead of Emanuele Pirro, Christian Abt, Hans-Joachim Stuck and Jean-Marc Gounon. Vanina Ickx was the only driver who was significantly slower than the other 15 drivers, who were all within 1,872 seconds of each other. Vaniva was unfortunately 3,292 seconds behind Pole Position, but she is probably the Audi legend that has been out of a racing car for the longest time of all the drivers.

The race tomorrow will mark the end of the Audi Sport TT Cup, which has run since 2015.

The race will be live streamed at www.audi.tv, and starts 12.45 CET Sunday midday.
