Offered here is an Audi A4 Super Touring car built in 1995, although not raced until the following year, when it was campaigned in the ’96 ADAC Super Touren Wagen Cup by respected German team ABT Sportsline, and piloted by Danish racer Kris Nissen.
Chassis number ST05 was then raced in the 1997 FIA Cental European Zone Super Touring Championship in the hands of Josef Venc with some success.
For a brief period between 1998 -1999 the car is believed to have been used in Sweden, before being picked up in 2002 by Tyssline Racing to run in the Swedish SLC Championship. 2003/4 saw a change of ownership when chassis #ST05 was purchased by the Spanish racing team, B9 Racing to prepare and race in the Spanish Hillclimb Championship for a number of seasons.
