The British fans in particular are looking forward to seeing the over 600 bhp Le Mans sportscars over Easter this year. On 14 April, Britain´s Donington circuit hosts the first of two American Le Mans Series (ALMS) rounds to be held in Europe. For the Team Audi Sport North America and its two Infineon Audi R8 cars, the 2:45 hour race on Easter Saturday is not just the third round of the ALMS season - it is the next step on the way to the season highlight in Le Mans on 16-17 June. "For the first time we´ll encounter several new competitors that are also contesting Le Mans. For this reason, we´ll use this round as another way to see how we measure up against them," explains Head of Audi Sport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich.
