V de V: AB Sport Auto testing an Audi R8 LMS at Catalunya

By Johan Laubscher

AB Sport Auto was testing an Audi R8 LMS at Circuit Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain on Tuesday.

The French Audi Sport customer racing team is busy preparing for the 2015 V de V Endurance Series. The #45 Audi R8 LMS was driven by Maxime Jousse, who has also been confirmed as one of the team's drivers for the 2015 season.

AB Sport Auto also took part in the V de V testing at Magny-Cours this past weekend.

It is this French team's fourth season running an Audi R8 LMS in the V de V, which was highlighted by Franck Thybaud winning the GTV 2 class championship last year.

Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit in Spain will be hosting the opening round of the V de V Endurance Series, a four-hour race from 20-22 March.
