Audi will field coupé at Le Mans
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.
