Written by Alexander von Wegner, the 208-page volume describes the brand’s motorsport history since 1980.
Aside from documenting from the Audi archive, von Wegner also interviewed all of the former top managers of Audi Sport and many well-known driver personalities from different periods of time. The current Head of Audi Motorsport, Wolfgang Ullrich, also contributed extensively to the project.
“Each era is analyzed and illustrated by a total of 400 mostly colored pictures some of which have not been published before – including a unique historic document that shows the first twelve employees of Audi Sport in front of the former supermarket on the (then) Ringlerstrasse in Ingolstadt which is still home to the Audi Sport department today,” a company statement reads.
All race vehicles from the Audi Sport’s division are depicted in detailed, large-sized graphical representations and schematic drawings, from the R1 to the current R16.
The introduction to the book was written by Head of Audi Motorsport Wolfgang Ullrich, while Rupert Stadler, the Chairman of the Management Board of Audi AG, wrote a foreword.
The “30 Years of Audi Sport – 30 Years of quattro” book will be available from April 12, at bookstores and from an online ordering facility for 29.90 euros (including VAT).
