Huff to race Rotek Audi at Nordschleife

Audi TT-RSWorld Touring Car Championship racer Rob Huff is to compete in the VLN Endurance Championship with Rotek Racing at the wheel of an Audi TT-RS around the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife.

Huff, who currently competes for German team Münnich Motorsport in the WTCC, will take to the wheel of the race track in the Eifel Mountains this weekend along with American Robb Holland.

The duo will be racing in the final round of the eight-race VLN season over four hours at the wheel of the 2.5-litre front-wheel drive coupé.

“When I was offered the opportunity to race with Robb Holland in such an extraordinary car and at such an extraordinary venue, I was more than delighted to accept,” admitted Huff. “It’s always a privilege to race on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and, while we’re going for the class victory, winning the race outright could be possible if the region’s unpredictable weather comes into play.”

Huff admitted that adapting to the car should not take too long, as it is both front-wheel drive and of a similar power to his current SEAT León WTCC.

“What’s nice is that Rotek’s Audi TTRS is similar in power to the 2014-spec World Touring Cars, so it will be an interesting comparison ahead of next year’s programme, which I hope to announce after the next round of the WTCC in Shanghai,” added Huff.

Rotek’s Holland, who has previously raced in touring car series such as the WTCC and the British Touring Car Championship, is looking forward to being paired with the former World Touring Car Champion. The duo will be racing in the SP4T class, so far dominated by Holland and WTCC racer Charles Kaki Ng.

“I’m really excited about having Rob Huff alongside me for the VLN,” added Holland. “I’ve known him for a couple of years now and have a huge amount of respect for his talent. I’m really looking forward to seeing what he’s capable of in the TTRS, but I have no doubt that he’ll be instantly on the pace and will have a blast driving the car.

“Our main objective is to win our class, although the TTRS has the pace to match the GT3-spec cars in the right conditions. It will come into its own if the circuit’s damp or wet, with its high levels of downforce and front-wheel-drive configuration allowing you to be more aggressive.”
