Aditya Patel is ready to participate and race in the Audi R8 LMS Cup 2016, which will be held in China. The race will be held from May 20, 2016 to 22 at the Shanghai International Circuit in China.
Aditya will be racing for Absolute Racing, in a Audi R8 LMS car. The car is light, but safe at the same time thanks to a roll cage built into a steel body. Last year, Aditya finished in an impressive 4th place overall. His main sponsors last year were Audi India, JK tyres, and Jubilant Motorworks.
Speaking about this year's race, Aditya said, "Last year was a very positive year for me. Yes, I did have a few bad races which dented my hopes of fighting for the top three spots in the championship, but we still managed to put in some good results which helped me secure the drive this year."
"The aim is to win as many races as possible. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Audi India, JK Tyres, Jubilant Motorworks and GoPro for their support."
The 2015 season of the Audi R8 LMS Cup will see some of the top people in the motorsports industry like former Formula One driver Alex Yoong, Cheng Congfu, former female DTM racer Rahel Frey, and Marchy Lee, the winner of the 2012 cup.
