For the first time ever, an automobile manufacturer managed to decide the three most important 24-hour races in Europe in its favor: Nurburgring (D), Le Mans (F) and now Spa-Francorchamps (B) – within just 71 days. Continue reading ‘Audi R8 LMS ultra takes win at Spa 24 Hours’

“Obviously, our victory in the past Blancpain race at Le Castellet is giving us a boost. We’re the runners-up in the standings now and at Spa up to 49 points are awarded. Naturally, our aim is to clinch a victory for Audi – no matter which driver team wins the race. Last year, I competed for Phoenix there, and this year for WRT. Both are top-caliber professional teams with a very individual approach. And we’re a good driver squad because Christopher Mies, Stephane Ortelli and I are a perfect fit. Christopher and I benefit from Stephane’s immense endurance racing experience.” Continue reading ‘Audi drivers ahead of Spa 24 Hour’

Exactly six weeks ago you won the 24-hour race at the Nurburgring in the Audi R8 LMS ultra. How often do these moments come back to your mind now?

“Very often. Especially this weekend when I was a guest at the DTM an incredibly large number of people mentioned this to me and expressed their congratulations. And then the authentic winning car was showcased at Audi’s location and I had the chance to do some show laps in it – that was truly a goose bump feeling…”

No disrespect to Toyota but it was somewhat of a given that Audi would be at the top in most sessions leading up to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Wednesday’s qualifying session was quite eventful and we did see the two petrol powered Toyota TS030 Hybrid on pace but it was the new Audi R18 e-tron quattro on provisional pole.

The 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, Andre Lotterer, set a time of 3:25.453s late into the first qualifying session last night. This time was slower than his 3:25.163 earlier in the practice session but was .285s faster than last years pole. Lotterer will share the no1 Audi R18 e-tron quattro with Marcel Fassler and Benoit Treluyer. Continue reading ‘Provisional pole for Andre Lotterer in Audi R18 e-tron quattro at Le Mans’

In the center of the city of Le Mans, Audi completed the scrutineering process for the 24-hour race in the presence of a large crowd.

Prepared for Le Mans: Audi Sport Team Joest completed scrutineering for the Le Mans 24 Hours as early as on the Sunday before the race. The two Audi R18 e-tron quattro and the two R18 ultra cars perfectly passed the technical inspection. The unusually early scrutineering date, however, meant that three Audi drivers were not on hand this time and will present themselves a day later.
