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’
