Audi customers pass tough Eifel test
- Race interruption and high retirement rate due to extreme weather
- G-Drive Racing by Phoenix best Audi customer team in fifth place
- Three Audi R8 LMS ultra cars among the top ten
The customer teams of last year’s winner Audi experienced one of the toughest events of the Nürburgring 24 Hours this year. Heavy rain forced race control during the night to interrupt the race for more than nine hours. Numerous accidents caused a treacherous mix of oil, mud and rain water on the track. Three Audi R8 LMS ultra cars had accidents in these critical conditions and retired. In the end, Marcel Fässler/Mike Rockenfeller/Frank Stippler/Markus Winkelhock (CH/D/D/D) in fifth place were the best Audi drivers.
