Spa 24 Hours: Marcel Fässler wants victory at the Spa 24 Hours

By Jean-Baptiste Lassaux

Marcel Fässler is competing this weekend in the Spa 24 Hours behind the wheel of a brand new Audi R8 LMS. The three times Le Mans 24 Hours winner is sharing the Audi Sport Team Phoenix run car with André Lotterer and Mike Rockenfeller.

We had a quick chat today with Marcel Fässler about the demanding Belgian endurance classic.

"We are in a better position that we expected before the start of the racing weekend. I have very good feelings with this new Audi R8 LMS even though we are not using the same tires as in the Nürburgring 24 Hours"

"The car is very good in the wet and for me personally it doesn't matter if it will be a dry or a wet race. We are here to try to win and I really want to take the victory"
