Successful day of testing for Audi at Le Mans

Le Mans 2007
Audi R10 TDI #1 (Audi Sport Team Joest), Frank Biela
  • Almost 3,400 kilometres without any significant problems
  • Good start of newcomers to Audi Sport Team Joest
  • Over 20,000 spectators watched the tests

During the eight hours available, Audi Sport Team Joest fully concentrated on reeling off the testing programme that had previously been defined in detail. As usual with Audi Sport, the tasks were clearly divided: The Audi R10 TDI car number 2 (Dindo Capello/Allan McNish/Mike Rockenfeller) was fitted with additional data acquisition equipment in the morning. In the afternoon, the team in car number 2 ran tyre tests. Last year’s winners Frank Biela, Emanuele Pirro and Marco Werner (car number 1) compared various suspension set-ups. The R10 TDI bearing number 3 in the race (Mattias Ekström/Lucas Luhr/Alexandre Prémat) was equipped with various aerodynamic variants.
