Audi Brazil invited local media to a press conference with Lucas di Grassi three weeks before the beginning of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). Last year’s Le Mans runner-up took advantage of the opportunity to meet with about 40 members of the media in his native São Paulo. Lucas di Grassi is sharing the #8 R18 e-tron quattro with the Frenchman Loïc Duval and the Briton Oliver Jarvis this year. “Interest in my home country in Le Mans, as well as in endurance racing in general, has been growing year after year,” said a pleased di Grassi.
