Andreas Roos, who is responsible for all manufacturing facility motorsport commitments at Audi Sport, states that the new car will be offered to private teams: “With the LMDh challenge, we are continuing the philosophy of our early several years in athletics prototypes. The Audi R8 was not only the most prosperous prototype of its time from 2000 to 2006, with 63 victories in 80 races, but it was also very prosperous in the palms of our buyers and uncomplicated for the teams to deal with. This is also the premise with the electrification of our new athletics prototype.”
“Our target is to also set the car in the palms of expert customer teams suitable from the start, in parallel to manufacturing facility entries.” he concludes. Audi is one of the most prosperous Le Mans competitors in the background of the race, and we welcome their return to the race.
