Oneighturbo Audi 24 Hours Spa 120725 11464

Christopher Haase, Audi R8 LMS ultra #1 (Audi Sport Team WRT)

“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.

Christopher and I benefit from Stephane’s immense endurance racing experience.” Continue reading ‘Audi drivers ahead of Spa 24 Hour’
