Audi teaser voor Goodwood festival 3,4 en 5 juli

Audi heeft een druk programma aangekondigd voor het viering van het honderdjarig bestaan. Het eerste evenement waar groots wordt uitgepakt, is het Goodwood Festival of Speed.Daar worden demonstraties gegeven met auto’s uit de vroege racehistorie van het merk, maar ook met de laatste R15 die onlangs nog de 24 uur van Le Mans reed. Andere takken van autosport krijgen uiteraard ook ruim aandacht.

Zo is verder de beroemde Quattro te zien waarmee talloze rallyoverwinningen behaald zijn, maar ook de grote toerwagens uit de IMSA-klasse en uiteraard DTM-auto’s. Enkele moderne modellen die Audi aan het publiek zal tonen zijn de A1 concept auto, de TT RS en de R8 V10.

Het Audi-jubileum wordt in Nederland verder gevierd met het uitbrengen van een prachtig boekwerk onder de titel ‘De Vier Ringen’. Hierin wordt de indrukwekkende historie van Audi nauwgezet beschreven en fraai in beeld gebracht.

Tot slot gaan bij alle Nederlandse Audi-vestigingen de jubileumvlaggen uit. Uiteraard gebeurt dat ook bij de DTM-races die van 17 tot en met 19 juli op het circuit van Zandvoort plaatsvinden. In de Audi hospitality unit wordt dan onder meer aandacht besteed aan de sportieve historie van Audi.

Hier het persbericht;

Fresh from Audi’s recent historic eleventh successive podium finish at the Le Mans 24 hour race, the brand will be celebrating again in just ten days time at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed (3-5 July) as the renowned Ingolstadt-based marque turns 100 years old.
The focus of Audi’s global celebrations is on the Festival of Speed with a truly breathtaking automotive ‘monument’ in front of Goodwood House. With construction work fully underway, the Audi ‘Central Feature’ art installation is one of the most ambitious and striking sculptures ever constructed for the Festival, representing the unique style of one of the World’s most innovative automotive brands. A teaser image of the Audi structure is attached to whet the appetite.
The jaw-dropping 2009 Festival of Speed Central Feature will mark the second occasion that Audi has chosen to celebrate a significant anniversary at Goodwood. In 1999 Audi was honoured with one of the most striking and memorable Goodwood central features to date for its 90th anniversary. The famous Avus race track banking was recalled in an astonishing installation that included an Auto Union Streamliner and stunning Audi Avus quattro concept car perched on the banking.
Ten years on, the Audi marque has progressed to become an even more significant player in the global premium car market, combining an enviable image for innovation and quality, and exhibiting consistent worldwide sales growth. Today Audi offers one of the widest and most comprehensive product programmes in the luxury car sector, ranging from the hugely successful A3, right through to the pioneering R8, and including the Q7 V12TDI, with an engine directly developed from Audi’s all-conquering turbo diesel R10 TDI sports-prototypes that have dominated the Le Mans 24 hour race from 2006 to 2008.
Audi’s recent and historic Le Mans success will form part of the marque’s celebrations at the Festival of Speed, harmoniously linking in with this year’s Festival theme of ‘True Grit – Epic Feats of Endurance’. To this end, the Audi R10 TDI has been selected as the subject for this year’s official Festival of Speed image, beautifully painted as always by specialist motor racing artist Peter Hearsey. The Le Mans-winning Audi R10 TDI will be on show at Goodwood, as will this year’s third-placed Audi Sport Team Joest R15 TDI, fresh from its Le Mans podium position.
A number of famous current and ex-Works Audi drivers will appear at the Festival, including Walter Rohl, Allan McNish, Hannu Mikkola, Stig Blomqvist, Emanuele Pirro, and Frank Biela.
In addition to Audi’s Le Mans competition machines, other important competition cars representing the Ingolstadt marque’s successful motor sport history will be on show. These include the innovative quattro rally cars – which will be seen being put through their paces on the Goodwood Forest Rally Stage – and the legendary Grand Prix Auto Unions, forming part of a comprehensive celebration of the 75th anniversary of the pre-War Silver Arrows racers.
Audi is erecting a stunning brand ‘showroom’ display in the Festival exhibition area, which will be used to showcase the Brand’s illustrious history, plus current product programme and merchandise. A number of important new Audi models will be making there UK debut at Goodwood, including the A1 concept car, the A5 Cabriolet, the TT RS and the R8 V10 supercar.
