The history of the Audi Sport - revealed in a book

A book about the history of Audi Sport, written by Alexander von Wegner, will be available in both German and English versions.

The "30 Years of Audi Sport 30 Years of quattro" book has 208 pages and describes the history of the brand since 1980. The book was written after he interviewed all of the former top managers of Audi Sport and many well-known driver personalities from different periods of time, including the current Head of Audi Motorsport, Wolfgang Ullrich.

"Each era is analyzed and illustrated by a total of 400 mostly colored pictures some of which have not been published before including a unique historic document that shows the first twelve employees of Audi Sport in front of the former supermarket on the (then) Ringlerstrasse in Ingolstadt which is still home to the Audi Sport department today," a company statement reads.

The book will be available from April 12, at bookstores and from an online ordering facility for 29.90 euros (including VAT).
