‘Ring 24 News
The upcoming next round of the German Endurance Championship on May 20 will be the last test before the 24 hour race in mid-June. We can expect a packed grid as teams and drivers are getting ready for the German classic.

The May 20 race will also be the premiere for Raeder Motorsport's newly-built Lamborghini Gallardo; the team has now released the first images of this car (below)

Audi does not have a works project this year but the factory drivers are free to join other teams for the 'Ring 24. 2005 FIA GT Champion and Spa 24 Hours winner Timo Scheider and his Audi stable mate Frank Stippler have teamed up with VLN regulars Patrick Simon and Marc Basseng at Land Motorsport and will drive the Porsche 996 GT3 RSR. Jürgen Alzen Racing has added Christian Abt to its line-up: he will share the Porsche 997 with Jürgen and Uwe Alzen, and Klaus Ludwig.

In the meantime, Subaru will once again send a WRC factory driver to Germany to drive an Impreza WRX. Australia's the 24 Hours will be the circuit racing debut for 26 year old Australian Chris Atkinson.
