Three Audis In Spain
Further to the suggestion that Audi is currently testing a DTM car
and an R8 at Jerez this week, it seems that there are three cars
a test session for two 24 hour races and three Championships at
the same time. Perhaps it’s primarily a DTM test, but the
Audi engineers will squeeze in some "component testing"
of an undisclosed nature with Rinaldo Capello and Marco Werner sharing
an R8, while Swedish touring car champion Fredrik Ekblom and the
ex-DTM Audi TT-R are on hand to officially start Audi's 2004 bid
for the Nürburgring 24 Hours win.
These two models
– the R8 and the TT-R - will be in action on the same weekend
in June, in separate corners of Europe. In the middle of all this,
Frank Biela and Tom Kristensen are acclimatising themselves with
the brand new A4 DTM challenger.
is from the roll-out of the new four door DTM car, just before Christmas
- and the second one is from the Jerez test..where Frank Biela and
Tom Kristensen recorded more than 1,300 kilometers testing the new
A4 DTM car.
