Giti’s Audi R8 to impress at Nürburgring Race

Giti’s Audi R8 to impress at Nürburgring Race

Giti is well-prepared for the upcoming 24 hours Nürburgring featured race weekend on June 22-23. Giti’s motorsports presence includes a team-record four vehicles, combining top technology and talent from around the world. The company’s two Audi R8 vehicles with WS racing and with full Giti yellow and black branding is all set to impress at the race.

Leading off Giti’s Audi team this year is a high-powered Audi R8 LMS Ultra. With a V10 5.2L DOHC engine and 570HP, it manages to put a great deal of strength into a relatively light weight of 1,225kg, ensuring great performance and flexibility on the track. The car’s driver team includes Henzel Bernhard, P. Lefterov, and F. Schickler. The second Giti Audi vehicle to join the race is an Audi R8 GT4, which packs 495HP into its V10 5.2L DOHC engine. This team features Chinese drivers Rainey He, Sunny Wong, Andy Yan, and Li Fei.

On both vehicles, Giti’s advanced racing GitiCompete GTR1 tyres will be used, in 300/650-18 (front) and 310/705-18 (back) sizes. These tyres have undergone extensive testing and track runs to ensure their reliability and fit, utilising the technology and research skills from Giti’s world-class R&D centres in Europe, USA, and Asia. This tyre technology and race data are then also used in building Giti’s everyday driving tyres with top reliability.

After successful performances with one car in 2017 and two vehicles in 2018, Giti this year participates with four vehicles that include high-powered Audi racers as well as two VW Golf vehicles.
