  • Dindo Capello beats track record in qualifying
  • Difficult task for the Audi drivers in ALMS finale

Audi Sport North America’s pair of Audi R10 TDI sportscars will start the final round of the American Le Mans Series at Laguna Seca (USA) from positions four and five on the grid. As expected, the petrol driven LM P1 cars had an advantage over the diesel powered cars in qualifying, benefiting from 65 kilograms less weight allowed by the regulations. On the track near California’s Pacific coast, featuring many uphill and downhill sections, they took the top two positions on the starting grid. Also the fastest car of the smaller LM P2 class will start ahead of the two Audi R10 TDI sportscars on Saturday at 2:45 p.m. local time (11:45 p.m. in Germany).
