AvD 100 Meilen: Overall victory for Audi R8 LMS ultra at Red Bull Ring

By Johan Laubscher

The AvD 100 Meilen held round four at the Red Bull Ring this past weekend, where the only Audi on the grid was very impressive.

An orange and white 2013 Audi R8 LMS ultra has been seen in the DMV TCC this year. It is entered by RS Tuning and driven by Suzanne Weidt. The latest DMV TCC round was also held at the Red Bull Ring this past weekend, where Weidt was behind the controls of the #8 Audi machine.

The same car was then also entered for the AvD 100 Meilen race, wherein it was driven by Jürg Aeberhard and Dietmar Haggenmüller. They showed very well behind the wheel of the Audi, which was wearing the #88. Their pole position was backed up by an overall victory in the very wet race. The weather played into the hands of the Audi crew, and they took full advantage of the conditions to take the first AvD 100 Meilen victory for an Audi.

A terrific result for one of the newest Audi Sport customer racing teams of the 2013 season. The next round of the AvD 100 Meilen will take place at Dijon, France in September.
