Audi's connection to the Race of Champions dates back to its beginnings when Michele Mouton, who finished second in the 1982 World Rally Championship in the legendary Audi quattro, came up with the idea of the Race of Champions together with Fredrik Johnsson. As a result, Audi participated in the inaugural event. In 1988, all former world rally champions competed against each other in the spectacular Audi Sport quattro S1 at Montlhery in France, and a year later the Group B vehicle thrilled fans at the second edition of the Race of Champions that was held at the Nurburgring. Now the event returns to Germany for the first time in 21 years.
