  • Six teams to compete with seven Audi R8 LMS cars in Bathurst 12 Hour
  • Most important endurance race in the Southern Hemisphere
  • New Audi R8 LMS to race in Australia for the first time

The Audi R8 LMS is facing a special test in Australia. In one of Audi Sport customer racing’s most important markets, the sports car is supposed to continue its string of success in endurance racing. Following victories in the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring and the Sepang 12 Hours last year, the GT3 sports car won the Dubai 24 Hours two weeks ago and the GTD class of the Daytona 24 Hours yesterday as well. On Sunday, February 7, the current generation of the R8 LMS will be tackling the Bathurst 12 Hour for the first time. The previous model had clinched two victories there.
