TG meets the mighty Audi R18 e-tron
Up close in testing with this year’s Le Mans pretender
Posted: 11 Jun 2014
So while these new rules mean the racing may have changed at Le Mans, it also means that the next R8 will bear far more resemblance to its circuit-based sibling than ever before. And the same goes for all of the other big manufacturers.
Will it work? We have no idea. And the teams are still scratching their heads to make everything work. But this new breed of hyper-hybrid racers go against each other for the first time when the 2014 WEC season kicks off on 20 April at Silverstone. Where hopefully any potential niggles will be ironed out before the ultimate racing season highlight at Le Mans on the weekend of 14-15 June.
Will the Four Rings rule again for a 13th time? Don’t bet against it…
