Truth in (MedCup) Engineering
It’s the hottest game going, but it’s not coming to a port near you unless you live close to the Mediterranean glamour circuit. MedCup racing for TP52s is what we’re talking about, and the series has just signed Audi AG as title sponsor to replace Breitling from 2007.
Hmm. Perhaps it was no accident that Audi had such a large display of hot cars outside the tents on the ’07 circuit.
The MedCup in 2008 grows to six events in four countries. Eight new TP52s are in late stages of build and aimed for the opening event May 12-17 at Alicante, Spain. The winners of the last three seasons – 2007 Artemis (SWE), 2006 Mutua Madrilea-Mean Machine (MON) and 2005 Mutua Madrilea (CHI) – are all back to compete in the 2008 Audi MedCup Circuit, all three with brand new boats. American, German and Spanish Americas Cup teams are also dedicating themselves to the circuit this year.
