Timm makes de­but in sil­hou­ette Audi

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ger­man driver Volker Timm made his de­but in BARC South East­ern’s In­ter­mar­que series at Brands Hatch, field­ing an Audi TT clone con­verted from short track spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

The 61-year-old from Duis­burg raced at Brands in 2002 to demon­strate the “su­per sil­hou­ette” con­cept when it was in­tro­duced in the UK.

A lengthy break from com­pe­ti­tion driv­ing then fol­lowed af­ter a dis­agree­ment with the Ger­man tax au­thor­i­ties over the dis­tinc­tion be­tween le­git­i­mate business costs and an ex­trav­a­gant hobby.

“I’m go­ing to be on hol­i­day when the next cham­pi­onship round takes place but hope to do the last two of the year,” he said. “If I en­joy it and can be com­pet­i­tive enough I’ll build a new car for next year, be­cause this one is 15 years old.”

Timm took a best re­sult of 13th in race two.
