  • Audi classics on the starting line at the 2019 Goodwood festival of speed



    Audi Tradition once again attends the Mecca of historic motorsport


    • Stig Blomqvist behind the wheel of the Audi Rallye quattro A2
    • Frank Biela will pilot the Audi 90 quattro IMSA-GTO
    • Audi 200 quattro TransAm will be driven by Benoit Tréluyer


    At this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed (taking place from 4th to 7th of July), Audi Tradition will be sending the Audi Rallye quattro A2, the Audi 90 quattro IMSA-GTO and the Audi 200 quattro TransAm to take on the world famous hill climb. The Audi Motorsport icons will be driven by outstanding names from Audi's history. World rally champion Stig Blomqvist will drive the car with which he became world champion in 1984. Five-time Le Mans winner Frank Biela will be behind the wheel of the Audi 200 quattro TransAm, while three-time Le Mans winner Benoit Tréluyer will be giving it his all in the Audi 90 quattro IMSA-GTO.

    Rally fans can expect to see the 1984 Audi Rallye quattro A2 at full throttle. The long wheelbase version was a further development of the previous year's car with which Hannu Mikkola became world champion. Audi opened the 1984 season with a bang when the team with the four rings landed a triple victory at the Monte Carlo Rally. Walter Röhrl, who had just joined Audi Sport, triumphed in his first appearance – but the season was to be shaped by someone else.

    The Swede Stig Blomqvist already won the next world championship race in Sweden and finished the season as the world champion driver. Audi also became the brand world champion. At Goodwood, Blomqvist will drive the exact same car in which he started in Monte Carlo in 1984, where he finished in second place.




    Frank Biela and Benoit Tréluyer will both be guests of Audi Tradition at Goodwood where they will get behind the wheel of two very special racing cars. Both are symbolic of Audi's beginnings in the USA. After the company withdrew from the rally scene, attention turned to circuit racing in North America. In 1988, the Ingolstadt-based manufacturer took an Audi 200 quattro to the starting line of the TransAm series and were unbeatable there.

    Right from the offset, Audi won in the brand classifications, while driver Hurley Haywood brought home the driver's championship. In the following year, Audi registered for the IMSA-GTO series with an Audi 90 quattro. Hans-Joachim Stuck was the star driver there, reaching the top spot of the podium a total of seven times. Having missed the two opening races, it was not to be enough for Stuck or the brand to take home an overall victory.

    The Audi vehicles present at Goodwood will be complemented by a two-wheeler from times gone by: the re-built DKW UL 500 from 1937 will also be among the motorcycles taking part in the event.

    Hi Ron,
    I have moved this to the correct section. If you can get someone to scan the car for faults it might give you some idea.

    The use of LEDs. Like it! I would prefer to fit LED bulbs, but the whinging dash would do me in.
    I might come back to you on that one.

    Re: Oil top up

    I would suggest oil is added in very small measures: maybe less than 250mls.

    I returned to Audi a week after a service as the MMI oil level

    If you don't have the ACC, then you'll not have traffic-sign recognition, is my understanding.
