Mention Tom Kristensen to the average person and they may know the name but not the significance. Mention Tom to an Audi fan? How much time do you have? Tom is the most successful race car driver in sports car history. We all know he won Le Mans ninetime, six of them consecutively but did you know he also won races in every single series he’s ever raced?
Goodwood Road & Racinghas put together a documentary about Tom’s greatest triumphs. You can see the trailer below. To watch the whole documentary, you have to join Goodwood’s website but wouldn’t it be better to see him in person?
Audi Club North America is honored to have Tom speak at the Nationals Gala at Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Museum on October 19th. The Audi Club National Event runs from October 16-20. He may also be at some of the other events Audi Club is holding during that time but as of right now, that’s not confirmed.
If you’ve never met Tom in person, now is your chance. He is a great storyteller and a very humorous personality. Sign up on the registration website for your chance to see Tom at Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Museum…a perfect place for a man who pushed the limits in very fast vehicles.
