First the Lupo, then the Polo and finally the Scirocco: after 17 years the era of Volkswagen one-make cups ended at the DTM finale at Hockenheim in 2014. Since then ABT Sportsline has been taking care of the cars fielded by quattro GmbH in the Audi Sport TT Cup that is held as part of the DTM’s supporting programme. The 26-member ABT squad is led by the Dane Hans Top. “Although the car has changed, the concept of equality of opportunity has remained the same. High suspense on track is therefore part of the programme,” says the project leader who is responsible for the overall technical support of the vehicles with his crew. “In the Lupo, Polo and Scirocco we had three types of cars over the years, all of which were running really well. Technical defects were the absolute exception. Now the young TT Cup drivers have again received a superb car,” says Top.
