RECARO Automotive Seating partner vehicle wins its class at the ADAC Zurich 24h-Rennen

The RECARO Automotive Seating partner vehicle from team LMS Engineering, the Audi TTRS2, won its class SP3T at the probably most exciting ADAC Zurich 24h-Rennen for years. The vehicle with the number 89 also showed its potential in the overall ranking with achieving a great 24th place. And another number speaks for itself: About 45 percent of the 161 participants at this year’s race classic in the Eifel region trusted in racing shells of RECARO Automotive Seating – that’s a statement.

Ulrich Andree, driver of the winning vehicle Audi TTRS2, summarizes his happiness about the successful weekend: “That’s typical of the Nürburgring! After temperatures of almost 30 Degree Celsius and dry roads for about 23 hours, it started raining during the final minutes. We quickly responded to the new conditions and gave everything during the final race kilometers!”

About 200,000 fans cheered for the teams and the pilots during the motor sport highlight of the year – along with great weather conditions until shortly before the vehicles crossed the finish line. The rain may have cooled down the asphalt, but certainly not the mood around the Nürburgring!

Besides the Audi TTRS2, the RECARO Automotive Seating partner team LMS Engineering also launched an Audi RS3 in the TCR class. Unfortunately, the vehicle with the number 173 had an accident on Sunday morning and couldn’t continue the race.
