GT Tour: Sensational 1-2 Audi R8 LMS ultra victory in the Le Mans race 1

By Tarek Ramchani

A perfect start for the Audi Sport customer racing squad in the 2014 French GT Tour Series. The Audi teams performed very well today at Le Mans in race 1 with a sensational 1-2 victory.

The short permanant Bugatti circuit hosted a great GT race today. New comers to Audi from Sebastien Loeb Racing took a great race win ahead of another Audi team, Sainteloc Racing.

Both teams battled very well for race win. After an amazing 1-hour sprint event, the #50 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Sebastien Loeb Racing won the race. The car in the hands of Mike Parisy and Heni Hassid took the race lead only five mintues before the checkered flag.

In a very strong second the #42 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Sainteloc Racing. David Hallyday and his team-mate Gregory Guilvert were impressive. Both drivers are familiars with the Audi R8 LMS ultra.

Race 2 is set for tomorrow. We wish the best of luck to all Audi teams and their drivers.
