The only German round of this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) takes place this weekend and the event is again expected to be hard-fought.
After that memorable finish to Le Mans, round four of the WEC moves to the Nürburgring where more than 60,000 fans are expected to catch the action.
Head of Audi Motorsport, Dr Wolfgang Ullrich, says he’s expecting a memorable event.
“If the races held to date are any gauge of the season, then the crowd at the Nürburgring can look forward to an even more thrilling competition than last year,”
“Our wish is to be in contention in the battle for the top spot in front of a full house.”
Audi is currently in second place on the manufacturer standings and drivers Lucas di Grassi/Loïc Duval/Oliver Jarvis (BR/F/GB) are also in second place with a one-point advantage over their immediate rivals.
While the Audi team will also return to a configuration with more downforce for the event and are expecting advantages in slow and semi-fast turns.
The six-hour race on the 5.137-kilometer track will start on Sunday night AEST.
