The third episode of Audi | Behind the Rings, the new free-to-download eight-part podcast that shines a light on Vorsprung durch Technik, lands on 23rd June. Electrifying Motorsport – A New Era examines how Audi is driving the vanguard of electric racing.
Host Alex Goy welcomes the legendary Allan McNish, who boasts an extraordinary track record behind the wheel of an Audi, winning two Le Mans, three American Le Mans Series, and the FIA World Endurance Championship.
McNish tells the story of his stellar 39-year career in motorsport spent almost exclusively at the technological cutting edge, his many successes as a driver, and how he has since moved from the cockpit to the pit lane as Team Principal of the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler Formula E team.
McNish demolishes the misconception of Formula E as a silent sport, explores the future of electric racing and discusses the Audi move into cross-country rallying next season.
The pod also examines how Audi has always chosen motorsport categories that allow technologies to transfer from racetrack to road, so that everything Audi Sport does to secure victory ends up, one way or another, in your car.
