Video: Mr Le Mans jumps the R16

By Johan Laubscher

The Race of Champions was hosted in Bangkok last weekend. Once again the Audi R8 LMS was amongst the cars used at the event. During the Friday practice sessions Tom Kristensen was seen taking a big jump in the Audi R8 LMS. Subsequently spectacular photos of his jump were published on the ROC Facebook page. The photos almost went viral among the motorsport and Audi related Facebook pages. DRIVE has just uploaded a video of that specific jump. The Audi R8 LMS got a decent amount of air, and it is clear why the organisers installed the artificial chicane on the bridge.
