During the Audi Sport Warm-Up event at the Competence Centre Motorsport in Neuburg, Audi Sport revealed that there will be four 2015 Audi R8 LMS ultra at the start of this year’s Total 24 Hours of Spa. Phoenix Racing and Belgian Audi Club Team WRT will each enter two cars.
The new Audi R8 LMS ultra was one of the highlights of last week’s Official Test Days for the 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series. Now it was revealed that four of those impressive machines will be at the start of this year’s Total 24 Hours of Spa. To prepare for the Belgian classic, the Audi Sport Customer Racing department is planning test runs during some of the previous rounds of the Blancpain Endurance Series as well.
Romolo Liebchen (Head of Audi Sport customer racing): “The response to our new Audi R8 LMS since its world debut in Geneva has been overwhelming. Now we need to prove on the race track that it delivers on its visual promise.”
