By Tarek Ramchani

The 12 Hours of Bathurst is the next big endurance event of the 2013 season. The Audi squad will be very well represented with no less of the seven Audi R8 LMS and ultra cars at the challenging Mount Panorama event.

Seven Audi cars with some great names from around the world. The latest addition is the 2012 FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) champion, Rob Huff from the UK. The British touring car ace is set to drive for Peter Conroy Motorsport #14 Audi R8 LMS. Huff won the demanding WTCC world title with a factory Chevrolet Cruze, beating teammate and arch rival Yvan Muller. At Bathurst he will be joined by team owner Peter Conroy and James Winslow in the Melbourne Performance Center supported R16.

Rob Huff joins other touring car aces at Audi for Bathurst, which includes V8 Supercars legend Craig Lowndes and the 2012 STCC and Superstars Series champion, Johan Kristoffersson from Sweden.
