Article by Christian A., on December 31, 2011

The official "Audi Sport customer racing 2009, 2010, 2011" book has been made available in time for Christmas, covering the AUDI AG customer racing program. Authored by Thomas Voigt, the book details the development of the GT3 sportscars on 256 colorful pages. It also showcases the creation of Audi's customer racing program. This program forms the automaker's third element in motorsport alongside the factory programs with the touring cars and the sports prototypes.

The book also features the recount of experiences by several "eyewitnesses" such as development driver Frank Biela and Audi Sport customer racing's boss Romolo Liebchen. The foreword is written by Werner Frowein, Managing Director of quattro GmbH. At least 700 images reveal the increasingly colorful world of Audi customer racing, including an overview of each design that adorns an Audi R8 LMS in its first three years of competition. The Audi R8 LMS has secured at least 100 race wins as well as numerous championship titles in those first three years. It has also captured the hearts of many fans.

The most important races and racing series, wherein the Audi R8 LMS joined the grid, are illustrated year by year. In addition, the Audi TT RS is described in detail. A full statistic chapter including all the results from 2009, 2010 and 2011 finishes the volume made in close cooperation with quattro GmbH.

"Audi Sport customer racing" is designed to be a collector's item for the enthusiasts of the Audi customer racing and the Audi R8 LMS. It is intended to be published as an annual at the end of each season. This book continues the series of successful Audi motorsport books.

In 2010, the German version of the book entitled "30 years of Audi Sport" was published, but is already sold out. The "Audi Sport customer racing 2009, 2010, 2011" is in German and English. It is published by the Hamburg Speedpool Verlag. It is available for 29.90 Euros at specialist bookshops or through www.racing1.de. It also comes in an eBook format, available through various online platforms. A special iPad version is set to be available in January 2012.
