ALLAN GET A TASTE OF AUDI R8 LMS ULTRA WITH TEAM WRT

Starting from position sixteen on the grid and crossing the finish line in fifth place after twenty five laps of the worlds' toughest racetrack – the Nürburgring Nordschleife, is a pretty good effort

That´s the result for Allan Simonsen and his team mates in WRT's Audi R8 LMS Ultra.

It was a good race, we always want to win, but the focus this weekend was to optimise drivers and team for the 24 h Nürburgring race on 17-20th of May. And that was very succesful, Allan Simonsen says.

Edward Sandström drove the last stint, but after only four laps the race was red flagged due to a collision.

We are very equal as drivers, and the team work very good, so this is very promising for the Adac Zürich 24h race at the Nordschleife. After this race we also have a list of things we can do better, Allan Simonsen says.

25 laps in four hours, including three pitstops with driver changes, gives an average speed of 163.98 km/h over the more than 20 kilometres long track runnig through the Eifel mountains.

The Fastest lap in the WRT Audi R8 LMS Ultra was 8.29.145 with team mates Other team mates are Andrea Piccini, Oliver Jarvis and Edward Sandström.
