By Tarek Ramchani

The all conquering Audi R8 LMS ultra has received aerodynamic changes for the 2013 season. Two fully detailed threads about the 2013 R16 can be read here and here

Hitotsuyama Racing is the first team to unveil their new 2013 Audi R8 LMS ultra. The Japanese Audi Sport customer racing team recently tested their car at the Fuji Speedway. The team is set to return to the Japanese Super GT series, the car will be shared by drivers Akihiro Tsuzuki and Richard Lyons. Last year Hitotsuyama Racing entered two older specification Audi R8 LMS cars in the demanding GT300 class with mixed results all season long.

Our friends from RacerLink were on site and offered great photo coverage of the new Hitotsuyama Racing racer. Their topic about Fuji's tests can be seen here.
