By Johan Laubscher 

It has been a busy period for the brand new 2015 Audi R8 LMS. Two weeks ago the new GT3 machine was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show and last week it took part in two sets of test days.

Paul Ricard was the scene for the annual SRO balance of performance tests and the Blancpain Endurance Series test days on Wednesday and Thursday, followed by the VLN Endruance Series test day at the Nürburgring Nordschleife on Saturday.

Audi Sport customer racing fielded one new Audi R8 LMS at both of these events. The new Audi R8 LMS looks and sounds stunning and will be making its race debut at the opening round of the VLN on 28 March.
