Rome 6 Hours: Audi Sport Italia entering two Audi R8 LMS ultra cars

By Johan Laubscher

Audi Sport Italia will be ending off their 2014 season with a six hour endurance race in Italy.

The Italian dealer team will be fielding their two Audi R8 LMS ultra cars in the 6 Hours of Rome (6h di Roma) at Vallelunga.

The team has previously taken part in this event when they fielded a single car in the 2012 edition of the race wherein they finished fourth overall, third in the GTS3 class.

The driving trio of Filippo Francioni, Thomas Biagi and Ferdinando Geri will be behind the wheel of one of the team’s two Audi R8 LMS ultra entries. The second car’s driver line-up is yet to be announced.

It should be a very exciting race for the Italian team following a very strong 2014 Italian GT Championship campaign.

The 2014 6 hours of Rome will be taking place from 14-16 November.
