Audi driver Tom Kristensen starts from pole position on his birthday
In an exciting qualifying session, Audi has captured the top two places on the starting grid for the 500-mile race at Road America (US state of Wisconsin). Due to oil on the track, Saturday´s qualifying session was interrupted exactly when Tom Kristensen and Emanuele Pirro left the pits with their Infineon Audi R8 sports cars, making it a race against time for Team Audi Sport North America. Just eight minutes left for the Audi works drivers – and thus just two flying laps on the four-mile long, very fast and demanding Road America track.
