 In News, World Superbikes


This weekend the Audi Sport TT Cup is hosted at the Hungaroring. On the sixth of seven race weekends, two stars from the FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK), Chaz Davies and Xavier Forés, will be on the grid as guest entrants. The races in the Audi one-make cup will be held as part of the DTM supporting program on Saturday, September 24, and on Sunday, September 25.

In the guest entrants’ classification, two stars from motorcycle racing will be pitted against each other at the Hungaroring. Chaz Davies (GB) and Xavi Forés (E) are currently riding the Ducati 1199 Panigale R in the Superbike World Championship. Davies became Supersport World Champion in 2011 and subsequently switched to the WorldSBK. There the 29-year-old Welshman has celebrated 13 victories to date and is currently ranking in third place.

30-year-old Forés was European Superstock 1000 Champion in 2013 and winner of the 2014 IDM Superbike Championship. “In the past, a number of motorcycle racers proved that they’re fast on four wheels as well,” says Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing. “I’m sure they’re going to deliver a fantastic show and fight a fair battle against our permanent entrants.”

The race weekend at the Hungaroring has its Qualifying session at 11:30 on Saturday, followed by the first 30-minute race at 16:20. On Sunday, at 11:45, round two across the same distance will conclude the weekend.
