ABT Sportsline is one of the most renowned tuners, dedicated to Audi models. But not everyone knows that is also a motorsport team, with many victories in endurance races. This year, ABT Sportsline signed a deal with Bentley Motorsport to run the luxury sportscar manufacturer’s ADAC GT Masters and Nurburgring 24 Hours campaigns with a pair of Continental GT3s.
The German team, which has multiple DTM championship titles as well as numerous GT and Formula E race wins to its name, is highly regarded as one of Europe’s leading race preparation outfits and will benefit from Bentley works team support in 2016.
The ABT Sportsline team will be run jointly with C.Abt Racing, which has many successful years of experience in racing in the series including taking the overall ADAC GT Masters titles in 2013 and 2014.
The team will also field two Bentley works team supported Continental GT3s in the world-famous Nürburgring 24 Hours with the aim of taking the outright victory for the British manufacturer.
The ABT Sportsline Continental GT3s will first race at VLN1 at the Nürburgring on 2 April followed by the opening round of the GT Masters on 16/17 April at Oschersleben.
