Audi driver Tom Kristensen to start at Le Mans
- Doctors give green light for the Dane’s comeback
- First time in race car again 48 days after accident
- Successful test at Brands Hatch with Audi A4 DTM
The doctors supervising Tom Kristensen’s (Denmark) recuperation and Audi Sport have given the go-ahead for his comeback following his successful test at the wheel of an Audi A4 DTM at Brands Hatch (England). As result, nothing else stands in the way of his competing for Audi Sport Team Joest in the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 16/17 June. The seven-time Le Mans winner will be racing alongside Dindo Capello (Italy) and Allan McNish (Scotland) as originally planned. As a result, Mattias Ekström, who was designated as reserve driver for Tom Kristensen, can now concentrate solely on the title fight in the DTM.
