From the 2016 season on, the new Audi R8 LMS will be racing in Audi’s first one-make cup in Asia as well. The participants in the overall classification and in the Amateur Cup of the Audi R8 LMS Cup will be relying on the new race car that has been introduced this year. At the same time, the previous race car will be retained as the base for the Masters Cup, a classification for drivers not included in the professional league. “In the new race car, we continue to promote innovation, fielding the latest Audi technology in Asia,” says Rene Koneberg, Director of Audi Sport customer racing Asia. The new race car delivers up to 585 hp, depending on the regulations, and sets standards in terms of active and passive safety.
