Audi and the FIA WEC break new ground in Mexico
- FIA WEC makes debut in Mexico City
- Highest race at 2,300 meters above sea level
- Audi drivers di Grassi/Duval/Jarvis currently second in the standings
Just one month before the factory opening, Audi starts the crucial phase of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in Mexico. Five of the nine championship races on the calendar are held between September and November. The world tour begins with the first ever world championship race in Mexico City on September 3. For drivers and engineers alike, it is the altitude of the 4.304 kilometer long track that represents the biggest change: at a height of more than 2,000 meters above sea level the air is quite literally rarified.
