Bathurst 12 Hour: Phoenix Racing back to Mount Panorama with an Audi R8 LMS ultra

By Tarek Ramchani

The already healthy Audi squad for the 2014 Bathurst 12 Hour endurance race is now boosted by a new entry.
Phoenix Racing, who had a very successful 2013 season with Audi in both DTM and endurance racing, are returning to Mount Panorama.

The Nürburgring based team will field a single Audi R8 LMS ultra in the demanding Aussie enduro event. The driver line-up will be announced later.

This will be the third straight year for Phoenix Racing at Bathurst. In 2012 the team entered a pair of Audi R8 LMS cars and won the event outright. In 2013 a single Audi car from Phoenix Racing took part in the 12-hour race and finished in a strong fourth overall.
