Audi sign Patel!

Well, not Audi as such ... the team is called Pro-handicap e.V. and they race the sports version of the Audi TT in the Veranstaltergemeinschaft Langstreckenpokal Nurburgring series (yeah, i know basic German :p) or VLN series for short. The Audi link comes in as Audi India are the ones who helped Aditya get the drive.

What is interesting is that the deal is for three years. You would have thought that a young driver like Aditya Patel (23 years old) would have his sights set higher on the motorsport ladder however this deal sees the Indian in the VLN until he is 26. Although doing well in this series could see him land a drive in the World Endurance Championship in the future - this is where Karun Chandhok is currently racing.

Unfortunately, news from this series is hard to come by so providing you guys with updates will be hard; however we will do our best! Check out our 2012 driver profile for Aditya here (bottom of the page).
