Disappointment for Audi in qualifying at Austin
- Second and third row on the grid for the Audi drivers
- Problems with lap trigger signal prevent regular qualifying
- Optimism for the race after good work in free practice sessions
Audi started qualifying for round four of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) at Austin full of optimism. Following two best times set in the free practice sessions, the squad of Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich and Chris Reinke, Head of LMP, saw itself well prepared for the final qualifying session as well. However, the failure of a lap trigger signal frustrated any hope of taking a position on the front row of the grid.
