Eleven days before the only round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in Germany at the Nürburgring, suspense is rising. Audi driver Marcel Fässler responded to questions by interested local media and motorsport journalists at a press conference hosted by the organizer in Cologne on Wednesday. In front of the near-100 meter tall “Kölntriangle” tower, a large crowd of WEC fans and photographers were pleased about the Audi R18 as a photo subject. “I’m already excited. A year ago, we had 62,000 spectators,” said Fässler. “I’m hoping for just as many fans turning out at the race track and rooting for us again this year.” On July 24, at 13:00, the battle for victory in the 6 Hours of Nürburgring will start.
