Good news India, we're getting more prominent on international racing circuits.

Audi has signed Aditya Patel on a three year contract to race in the VLN endurance series in Germany making him the first ever Indian to race in the established Nurburgring 24 hour race. After signing the deal on Friday he was ready to compete in his first race on the 14th.

He will be racing in the Audi TT (sport) for the Pro-handicap e.V, which will be pushed to its limit in the endurance races that can range from 4 - 24 hours in duration. However, the Audi has a good record in the event with the car finishing all seven times it has entered.

Patel has risen through the ranks of motorsport and began his professional racing career at a young age after competing in the JK Tyre national racing championships at the age of 14.
