Prosperia uhc Speed and Christian Abt have joined forced to form the newly named team of Prosperia C.Abt Racing. The team will enter two Audi R8 LMS ultra cars as they did in 2012. Last year the team had a very mixed season with many ups and downs.

New comers to Audi are MS Racing with a two-car effort. The team had a fantastic 2012 season in the series by winning both the teams and drivers titles. MS Racing are switching from Mercedes-Benz and will have two very special numbers: #1 for the first R8 LMS ultra as defending champions, and #100 for the sister Audi celebrating the 100th customer race car delivered by Audi Sport customer racing and quattro GmbH.
