ROC: Four Audi R8 LMS ultra cars ready to debut at Race Of Champions Barbados

By Johan Laubscher

The 2014 Race Of Champions will be taking place at the Bushy Park circuit in Barbados from 13-14 December.

Preparations for the event are in full swing on site at Bushy Park. Two weeks ago it was announced that Audi GT3 machinery had once again been selected to be one of the ROC car choices for the fifth consecutive year.

The first photos are beginning to appear online and these have revealed that four Audi R8 LMS ultra cars will be used during this up coming weekend's event. Previously only the older Audi R8 LMS models had been used for the ROC events, but this year will see the ROC debut of the newer Audi R8 LMS ultra variant. These Audi R8 LMS ultra cars are in the 2013 specification.

First up will be the ROC Nations Cup on Saturday and then the Race of Champions on Sunday, which will see multiple world class drivers taking part, including Mr Le Mans Tom Kristensen.
