Audi R10 TDI in third and fourth row at Long Beach
- New LM P1 lap record set by Audi R10 TDI
- Lucas Luhr fastest LM P1 driver on the grid
- Audi R10 TDI improved lap time by one second
The Audi R10 TDI was able to improve its lap time in qualifying for the third round of the American Le Mans Series by a remarkable margin over last year’s result. On the bumpy temporary Long Beach (California) track the diesel-powered sportscar achieved a lap time that was nearly a whole second quicker than in 2007. By comparison, the leading LM P2 car on pole position was only 0.5s quicker than last year. As the lap times between the two LM P classes have been much closer than before, the first seven cars were covered by just 0.566s with Audi starting from sixth and seventh positions on the grid.
