Victory in Malaysia thwarted by tire failure
- Frank Biela/Marcel Fässler/Marco Werner are the runners-up at Sepang
- Audi R8 LMS was the most reliable vehicle in extreme temperatures
- Customer sport race car led the race up to 18 minutes before the end
In extremely tough conditions at the 12-hour Malaysia Merdeka Endurance Race at Sepang the Audi R8 LMS proved its endurance racing qualities yet again. Technically, the production-derived customer sport race car was running with absolute perfection. After the Bathurst 12 Hours, the Spa 24 Hours and Zolder 24 Hours the fourth endurance race victory of the Audi R8 LMS was practically within reach. However, a tire failure thwarted the victory of Team WRT (Belgian Audi Club) by a very narrow margin.
