Audi hits the track with Major League Soccer All-Stars in Chicago
CHICAGO, August 2, 2017 – Audi joined Major League Soccer All-Stars at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet for an exclusive track day in celebration of the game today at Soldier Field. All-Stars including Nemanja Nikolic of the Chicago Fire and Ignacio Piatti of the Montreal Impact and Sebastain Giovinco of the Toronto FC, tested their skills behind the wheel of the all-new Audi Sport models, including the RS 3 and R8 Spyder.
Players had the chance to put an RS 3 through its paces while maneuvering around a custom built Autocross course to determine the fastest driver, as well as take the R8 Spyder for a spin on the track.
The updated Audi sport lineup includes the new TT RS – the most powerful production TT ever, with a class-leading 400 hp. The new-to-the-U.S. RS 3 goes from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 174 mph, and the R8 Spyder is a drop-top supercar with an unfiltered sound and a 540 hp V10 engine.
The best in MLS will face Spanish giants Real Madrid, the newly minted back-to-back reigning UEFA Champions League winners, in the 2017 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target on August 2 at Soldier Field in Chicago. The summer showcase will air at 8:30 p.m. ET on FS1, Univision, TSN and TVA Sports domestically as well as more than 170 countries globally.
