Team Novadriver testing 2013 Audi R8 LMS ultra at Estoril


By Johan Laubscher

Team Novadriver from Portugal have completed their second 2013 pre-season test this week. The team were testing their two Audi R8 LMS ultra cars at Estoril following their test at Braga last week. Both cars are being upgraded to the new 2013 Audi R8 LMS ultra specification. 

One of the team’s two cars has already been upgraded to full 2013 specification and the second car is in an intermediate state of the upgrade. Visually the second car already has the new exhaust set up and now only needs the new rear wing and diffuser to be installed.

It was announced earlier that the Novadriver team will be competing in the FIA GT Series and the Portuguese GT Championship. The final driver combinations were also announced at the end of the Estoril test. The FIA GT Series entry will be driven by Cesar Campanico and Carlos Vieira. The Portuguese GT Championship will see a two-car entry driven by Cesar Campanico / Carlos Vieira / Mikko Eskelinen and João Figueiredo / João Ramos / Antti Buri.

The team states: “Ambition? Winning!” and we wish the team the best of luck for another sensational motorsport season.
