Motor Sport News - - Historics -

For­mer Bri­tish Tour­ing Car driver Frank Wrathall will race an ex-emanuele Pirro Audi A4 at the Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic in July.

Wrathall, 29, was a race win­ner in the BTCC. He has won Su­per Tour­ing Tro­phy events at the Clas­sic in both a Vaux­hall Cav­a­lier (2013) and Audi 80 (2015). He will now race the last four-wheel-drive A4 pro­duced by Audi and tested the car for the first time at Sil­ver­stone last week.

The 1997 Audi, owned by race or­gan­iser Jonny West­brook, was driven to a race win and sixth place over­all in the Ger­man Su­per Touren­wa­gen Cup and com­peted across Europe be­fore West­brook bought it. Pirro drove it dur­ing the demon­stra­tions at Good­wood in March.
