Audi will field coupé at Le Mans

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

AUDI will con­test next year’s Le Mans 24 Hour race (and sup­port­ing events) with a coupé. All Audi’s nine vic­to­ries at Le Mans have been with open cars. The Audi-in­flu­enced Bent­ley which won in 2003 was a coupé and Audi also ran a coupé in 1999. “In the fu­ture, aero­dy­namic ef­fi­ciency will be even more im­por­tant at Le Mans than it was in the past,” says head of Audi Motorsport Dr Wolf­gang Ull­rich. “A closed car has clear ad­van­tages in this re­spect,” he added.
