Having not managed to get to any BTCC races this year, this meant that we hadn't managed to get to see Rob Austin Racing's A4 NGTC (Next Generation Touring Car) "in the flesh"- or, indeed, the "King of Cool", Rob Austin, himself.
We managed to catch up with the BTCC's "King of Cool", & future film star Rob Austin, to get more details about his A4 NGTC (Next Generation Touring Car) and how things have progressed since entering the BTCC in 2011.Read More...
We've been banging on about Rob Austin Racing's A4 in the BTCC this year; plagued with issues- and more importantly- sponsorship/ budget for his (pair) of Next Gen A4 touring cars. They plan to come back- as "winner never quit & quitters never win" - at the next race at Rockingham..
BUT NOW YOU CAN HELP
In their own words....
"Here’s your chance to get your own photo onto the roof of Rob’s Audi for the Rockingham round of the BTCC.
For just £35 you’ll get a 10cm x 5cm space on the roof area.
Be quick though – there’s a limited number of spaces available so when they’re gone they’re gone… We’ll print them and stick them to the roof of the car for the next round of the BTCC."
Well done Rob Austin and the guys at Rob Austin Racing for managing to get onto the podium at Croft this weekend in the BTCC- and while fielding two A4 Next Gen Touring Cars (NGTC)- more details to follow...
So; we're not at LeMans (this it's 80th year)
No surprises there!

Last week, Audi UK asked via their Facebook page for questions from fans to poise at Allan McNish.
Obviously we were straight in there with a bit of a "curve ball"- we've bene following Allan on twitter for a while, and noticed recently tweets regarding his daughter... so why not ask him about that in relation to motorsport.......
Good luck for LeMans and the series, Allan - the video can be found on youtube here: www.youtube.com/watch
