Title advantage changes hands: Mikel Azcona takes the lead in the Audi Sport TT Cup

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Mikel Azcona has taken the table lead of the #audisportttcup with a flawless display at the Nürburgring. The 21-year-old Spaniard started from pole twice and won both races. Philip Ellis, who had led the table until now, suffered his first retirement of the season on Saturday, and is now second on the table having finished fifth on Sunday.

The change in fortunes could have hardly been more dramatic for Philip Ellis: within just one race weekend, his 33-point advantage has turned into a three-point deficit. The table lead has changed hands for the first time this season, and thus a particularly exciting sprint for the title in the final two rounds has now commenced. Mikel Azcona has gone from the ‘hunter’ to the ‘hunted’ after five victories in the last six races. Behind the leading duo there has also been a change in the table order. In finishing second on Sunday, rookie Tommaso Mosca from Italy celebrated his third podium result of the 2017 #audisportttcup. As a result, he has taken Milan Dontje’s place in third in the championship, and now has a 20-point advantage over him after the Dutchman had to retire from Sunday’s race.
