The 2013 Bördesprint Cup saw the participation of the Rotary Motorsport IG team, who entered Audi TT RS and Audi R8 LMS ultra cars.
The Rotary Motorsport IG team entered an Audi TT RS for Berthold Gruhn in the 2012 Bördesprint Cup and they later debuted the car in the 2013 Spezial Tourenwagen Trophy. They also debuted their Audi R8 LMS ultra at round five of the 2013 Bördesprint Cup and took part in three of the rounds this year. The Bördesprint Cup is also another example of a smaller European championship which allows the full 2013 specification Audi R8 LMS ultra to compete with the new more aggressive rear diffuser fitted to the cars.
The season review has been compiled from the 2013 Audi Motorsport Blog Weekend Round Up posts. Each round has been added as was seen in the individual Weekend Round Up posts during 2013, which can be accessed via the links throughout the review below:
