McNish & Ortelli Again
It was confirmed yesterday, Wednesday, that Allan McNish will definitely partner Stephane Ortelli in the ORECA PlayStation Audi R8 at the Nurburgring next weekend (September 9-10-11).

The pair scored that famous victory at Silverstone, and Hugues de Chaunac was obviously very keen to keep them together.

It is “75% certain” that the pair will also race at Istanbul in November – so there’s the possibility of three McNish-Ortelli wins to round off the R8’s competition history in Europe. Depending on results in the ALMS too, that could make a total of 65 Audi R8 wins by the end of the year – but Dyson Racing, Pescarolo Sport, Creation Autosportif and others will be doing their level best to keep that figure at 60.
