Episode 18: Drew Ridge, Audi TT Cup and living in Germany.
On this episode of Minds of Motorsport we chat to Central Coast NSW racer Drew Ridge. Drew’s motorsport career has seen him race in karting as well as open wheelers both in Australia and overseas as well as competing in the Bathurst 12 hour and Toyota 86 racing series before making the trip to Germany to race in the Audi TT Cup in 2017.
Our chat is primarily based around his journey to Germany and his experiences racing in the TT cup where we learn about what it took to get a wildcard opportunity, the intensiveness of the Audi training camp as well as his experiences living in a country where, at first, he didn’t speak the language.
Topics of discussion:
- Background in motorsports.
- Who played the biggest influence on Drew’s career.
- The TT Wildcard opportunity.
- From Wildcard to Fulltime drive.
- Audi young driver training camp.
- Life in Germany.
- Racing in 2018 and beyond.
