“A much better workplace”
Race driver Edward Sandström has also made his way to Neuburg an der Donau. He climbs into the cockpit of the Audi R8 LMS wearing the official racing overalls. “The workplace for us drivers is much better now. For instance, the ventilation has been improved,” says the Swede, talking about the new features inside the car. Sandström was one of the winning Audi drivers at the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring in mid May.
It doesn’t bother him that today is just a few laps of the proving grounds. “I enjoy every second I get to sit in the car,” he says, closes his helmet visor, starts the V10 and heads out onto the track.
