Van der Linde looking to strike back in Dutch Audi Sport TT Cup races
South Africa’s Sheldon van der Linde heads to Holland for the fourth round of the 2016 Audi Sport TT Cup championship intent to come home with nothing less than a double victory on the classic Dutch Zandvoort seaside circuit 16-17 July.
Sheldon has won three of the six TT Cup races so far this season and is keen to return to his winning ways following a challenging weekend at the Norisring last time out: “I have already shifted my focus to the remainder of the season and put the disappointment of Norisring behind me,” the Dainfern, Johannesburg teenager admitted. “The most important thing for me right now is to make up as many points as possible following my incident at Norisring a few weeks ago.
“I feel confident in myself and in the car to do just that and potentially regain the championship lead within the next few races — I have prepared thoroughly for the Zandvoort race weekend on the simulator and my first impressions of the track are vey positive. “It seems very physically and mentally demanding but I’m always up for the challenge.”
