Car insurance: Audi smash hat trick record

Thursday, 29 October 2009

Audi has written another chapter of motorsport history after becoming the first ever car manufacturer to achieve a title hat-trick in the prestigious international touring car racing series, care of motor insurance customer Timo Scheider.

After successes in 2007 and 2008, Audi clinched the coveted trophy for the third consecutive time in a thrilling finale at the Hockenheimring in front of 155,000 spectators and car insurance customers.

Audi driver Timo Scheider stayed on the heels of his only remaining rival for the title, Gary Paffett, during the entire 39 laps to successfully defend his title from last year by finishing in second place.

Rupert Stadler, chairman of the executive board of Audi AG, said Audi Sport could not have given the brand a nicer gift on its 100th anniversary.

He added: "Every Audi employee can be proud of the performance which the DTM squad delivered this year - or better said, has been delivering for three consecutive years".

It has so far been a good year for Audi, who recently announced record sales in China during 2009.
