FIA WEC: Audi presents new R18 e-tron quattro at Le Mans

Audi Press Release / News in brief update

In a unique presentation, Audi will be unveiling the technology, the innovations and the livery of the new Audi R18 e-tron quattro at Le Mans on March 25.

Le Mans record winner Tom Kristensen will be driving the LMP1 sports car from the city center to the race track – in keeping with an all-but forgotten tradition of the legendary race dating back to the days when the drivers would travel to the venue in their race cars. The drive from the Place des Jacobins to the ‘Circuit des 24 Heures’ will start at 13:30. From 12:30, an autograph session with Tom Kristensen and his WEC team-mates will be held at the Place des Jacobins.
