By Johan Laubscher

Audi Sport is in full swing preparing for the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship. They were testing at Sebring recently, putting the Audi R18 e-tron quattro through its paces. The test took place ahead of the 12 Hours of Sebring that was held last weekend, where the LMP1 cars did not compete, but five Audi R8 LMS cars did take part. 

Audi Sport has released a new trailer video which includes Sebring testing footage. This video has been embedded below:

Audi Sport will be presenting the new Audi R18 e-tron quattro and its race livery in France next week, with a special drive from the center of the city to the Le Mans circuit on 25 March.

The FIA WEC will be hosting its official test days at Paul Ricard next week, 28-29 March, followed by the opening round at Silverstone, 20 April.

The video embedded below includes some of the first new Audi R18 e-tron quattro testing footage that has been released publically by Audi Sport: 

Please note: The independent Audi Motorsport Blog does not normally report or post news and/or spy-photos of private/secret Audi LMP1 or DTM testing. We only mention these types of tests after the official Audi Communication - Motorsport media channels have publically acknowledged the occurrence of these secret tests.
