ALMS 2006
Audi R10 TDI #2 (Audi Sport North America), Dindo Capello
  • First defeat in qualifying for the Audi R10 TDI
  • Weight reduction for LM P1 rivals
  • Dindo Capello fastest Audi driver at Portland

Following another change of the regulations at short notice, the two Audi R10 TDI sports cars will start the sixth round of the American Le Mans Series at Portland (US state of Oregon) from the second and third rows of the grid. Dindo Capello and Emanuele Pirro (both Italy) had to be happy with third and fifth places respectively in Friday’s qualifying session after the toughest competitors in the LM P1 class, Team Dyson Lola, had been granted a further weight-reduction of 40 kilograms (88 pounds). This means the Lola is now 65 kilograms (143 pounds) lighter than the Audi R10 TDI.
