Klaus Ludwig joins Phoenix Racing Phoenix Racing will have a second car and driver, Klaus Ludwig, in Indonesia on the 16th and 17th of February. He will be driving the Alternative Capital Invest (ACI) sponsored "Legends Car" spearheaded by a different celebrity driver at each of the 4 Speedcar Series rounds left this season.
The German team will now have countrymen Uwe Alzen and Klaus Ludwig taking the wheel at the Sentul International Circuit. Klaus is a famous touring car racing driver with impressive accolades in his long racing career.
He is perhaps most well remembered for his unprecedented win in the 1979 Le Mans 24 Hours in a Porsche road car, beating faster pure sports car racing prototypes. Klaus, 59, has come out of retirement in the past when given the opportunity to drive a high powered vehicle. Speedcar Series will be no exception.
Phoenix Racing is sponsored by ACI, a distinguished German real estate development boutique in the UAE. Together, the team and sponsor throw in added competition to the Speedcar mix with the "ACI Legends Car".
Klaus Ludwig, a celebrity in his own right, will be the first such driver in Indonesia for Round 2 of the Grand Racing events organised by Speedcar Series and featuring GP2 Asia.
"Phoenix Racing is happy to now have 2 cars racing in Speedcar. The Series is an excellent platform in the Middle East and Asia for us to meet high calibre partners and sponsors such as ACI. Having two Speedcars driven by stellar talents also now gives us a better chance of competing for the Speedcar Series Champion title" said Dirk Theimann, Phoenix Racing Team Manager.
Speedcar Series will take to the track at the Sentul International Circuit for the first official race, where drivers can start racking up points in order to win the Champion title and millions of dollars in prize money. Automoto365
