Sheldon aims for TT title
SOUTH African racing prodigy Sheldon van der Linde (17) is ready for the second part of his Audi Sport TT Cup season commencing at the Nürburgring this weekend following his introduction to the Audi R8 LMS GT3 race as part of his Audi Sport Drivers Academy programme at Lausitzring last week.
He will now refocus on the Audi Sport TT Cup as he prepares for the Nürburgring races, where he won a race on his first visit to that famous circuit. “I hope to carry the momentum from Zandvoort through to Nürburgring and score the necessary points I need to regain the lead in the championship in the last three remaining races.”
Saying he is familiar with the turns at the infamous “Green Hell” in Germany, Van der Linde plans to use everything he has learnt in the first half of the season to score points.
