By Tarek  Ramchani

Spa-Francorchamps is playing host to FIA World Endurance Champinship round 2 this weekend. The last race before the demanding Le Mans 24 Hours in June.

Audi Sport will field no less than three factory Audi R18 e-tron quattro cars. The #1 Audi will be driven by Loic Duval, Tom Kristensen and Lucas di Grassi. The #2 R18 will be shared by the 2012 FIA WEC champions André Lotterer, Benoit Treluyer and Marcel Fassler. The third Audi R18 e-tron quattro will have only two drivers, Marco Bonanomi and now comer to Audi sportscar LMP effort Filipe Albuquerque. Oliver Jarvis will miss the Belgian race, the Audi driver will race in Super GT at Fuji Speedway and will be back for Le Mans.

Audi Sport Team Joest is already on site. Here a selection of photos from the Spa-Francorchamps paddock taken by our friends at Endurance-Info.
