Le Mans dress rehearsal for Audi

ALMS 2002
Emanuele Pirro in the Audi R8 #1

On Sunday 5 May, the Le Mans pre-practice serves as a Le Mans dress rehearsal for Audi Sport Team Joest. To date, only a few car manufacturers have managed to win the legendary Le Mans 24 Hour race three times in succession. After netting victories in 2000 and 2001, Audi has the chance to claim a hat-trick this year and prepares intensively for the season highlight on 15/16 June. After the 2002-spec Infineon Audi R8 won the opening race of this year´s motorsport season, the Sebring 12 Hour race, and successfully completed a 30 hour endurance test at Magny-Cours as well as high-speed tests on a company owned test track, now comes the dress rehearsal at Le Mans.
