Audi Sport TT Cup
All in pursuit of Philip Ellis: Tensions are high for the halfway point of the Audi Sport TT Cup season in Zandvoort from August 18 to 20: After three victories, the Briton Philip Ellis has occupied the top of the table since the very first race. However, his pursuers have begun to catch up in great leaps. Mikel Azcona climbed from seventh to second on the table after the previous race weekend at the Norisring. The Spaniard made his ambitions known in the title fight with two victories in Nuremberg, and he currently sits 33 points behind the leader. 50 points are up for grabs every weekend. Just one point behind Azcona follows Milan Dontje. The Dutchman, who stood on the podium twice in the previous three races, will be buoyed by the support of his many local fans at his home race. Tommaso Mosca has also made a stronger and stronger impression: the Italian stood on the podium for the first time in his motor racing career with a second place in Nuremberg. He is fourth on the table in front of the Pole Gosia Rdest, the fastest woman in the field. Mosca also leads the rookie rankings of the Audi Sport TT Cup. The Italian from Brescia has a five-point advantage over the Swiss Yannik Brandt. The third best newcomer is Keagan Masters from South Africa, who just like Fabian Vettel has so far collected 48 points.
