Audi Line-Up For The Other 24 Hour Race
After finishing second at last year’s Nurburgring 24 Hours (photo, below), Team Infineon Abt Sportsline will be aiming to go one better in 2004: the drivers for the two Abt-Audi TT-Rs will be Christian Abt / Mattias Ekström / Fredrik Ekblom and Patrick Huisman / Frank Stippler / Karl Wendlinger.

Team Infineon Abt Sportsline is currently building up the two race cars for this June’s race, chassis that are based on the 2003 DTM car. Testing is already taking place in Spain this week, with an existing chassis.

“We have assembled a powerful squad with a mixture of seasoned campaigners and youngsters for the 24 Hour race at the Nürburgring,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich.

A comprehensive test programme is planned for the coming weeks. It’s going to be a very interesting second weekend in June.
