Last year’s winner of the Audi Sport TT Cup will maintain Europe’s success in Asia in the coming season. Still under Audi brand. Jan Kisiel, who last year completely denied his competitors, this year is going to conquer the renowned racing series Audi R8 LMS Cup.
We will see him at the tracks in Shanghai, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea and Taiwan. Also in Shanghai, Jan Kisiel will finish the season with the prestigious WEC series. In addition, the Audi R8 LMS Cup will be accompanied by the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia and the Formula Masters China Series. The Polish driver will represent the the KCMG team.
The title of the Audi TT Cup series champion, he won a year before in an impressive style, has brought Janak’s invitation by the KCMG team to one of the best racing series of the Audi logo. The Hong Kong team has a lot of experience in competing in many racing series. His portfolio includes the World Endurance Championship, the Le Mans 24 Hours, the Japanese Formula 3 and Super GT, the Formula Masters China Series, and the Asian GT Championship.
Jan Kisiel does not hide the joy of the opportunity: “I am very happy to be able to race for the Audi racing car, but this time, the R8 LMS is waiting for me. The upcoming season promises to be exciting. I believe that with the team we will fight for the highest possible positions and maybe as a year ago I will be able to enjoy the title of a master. I’m sure I’ll fight for it. ”
The career of a Polish driver is expediting. The transfer of the Audi TT Sport to almost twice the more powerful model – the R8 developing 560 horsepower, testifies to the huge recognition of Janka’s skills and talent. Damian Raciniewski, President of Business Sport Solutions, which deals with the career of the Pole: “Janek has proven to be a driver of enormous potential in the previous season. The title of the Audi Sport TT Cup, achieved with a huge advantage over the rest, proved that the Pole’s talent was spotted by the best companies and allowed a huge boost in the world of motorsport, which is the start of the Audi R8 LMS Cup. We keep our fingers crossed for Janek and we hope for another year of success. ”
