The first ever Sports Car Champions Festival in China will be held at the Shanghai Audi International Circuit from November 10 to November 11, featuring Volkswagen, Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini and Porsche. Never before have six of the world’s most exciting sports car brands joined forces to promote motoring and sports car culture in China.
A special highlight during the festival will be the four internationally renowned supercar-racing cups: Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup, Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia Series, and Audi R8 LMS Cup. The Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup is hugely popular in China and has developed many young talented Chinese drivers. The Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has been in the region since 2003 and is deeply rooted in China. The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia Series has had six races in Asia this year to the delight of local fans; and the Audi R8 LMS Cup features cars that have been conquering endurance races around the world, including Le Mans.
As well as these world-famous races, there will be all kinds of interactive and informative activities to enjoy. These include sport car displays, a classic car parade, stunt motor shows by major event sponsor Ducati, and the Sports Car Trophy. Fans will be able to reach out and experience sports car culture like never before.
Furthermore, festival fans will get the chance to see a number of classic cars, including a 1930 Bentley 8 Litre, a 1938-39 Auto Union Type D, a 1988 Audi 200 quattro, a 1975 model of the Porsche 911 Carrera SC, a 1956 Volkswagen Beetle Miglia Mile edition and a 1972 Volkswagen Salzburg Ka fer. These classic cars combine the beauty of technology and a passion for speed. They represent the cornerstones of sports car culture over the past century. We believe that these classic cars are the precious heritage of sports car history throughout the ages, showcasing stylish design, advanced technologies and the finest craftsmanship.
The Sports Car Champions Festival is a milestone event that represents passion and a spirit of excellence, and will help more and more Chinese consumers better understand and enjoy the unique culture of sports cars.
