Audi R8C - Inside look by PAN_NULLO

By Johan Laubscher

Before the launch of the Audi R18, the Audi R8C was the first and only closed-roof Le Mans prototype racer from Audi. The car was developed for the 1999 Le Mans 24 Hours. Audi Sport UK (Apex Motorsport) ran two of these cars. The short development time doomed the ill-fated R8C cars, but they did look beautiful on track.

Antonio Pannullo’s blog, also known as PAN_NULLO, produces brilliant technical content on Sports Prototype racing. His latest post features the Audi R8C with some great drawings and facts. The post is well worth a look, as well as the other content on offer at his blog via the link below.
