The American Le Mans Series confirmed today that they will be running at Austin’s new Circuit of the Americas in 2013. Dates have not been announced yet, however we expect the full schedule to be released just before Petit Le Mans in October. Read the full ALMS press release after the jump.
More than 23,000 spectators showed up at the 80th 24 Hours of Le Mans Test Day to watch 61 cars make their first laps around Circuit de la Sarthe. Audi proved to be the quickest with their two R18 e-tron Quattro hybrids, with the #3 Audi R18 Ultra taking the third fastest spot overall.
The Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) have announced the hybrid braking zones for the upcoming 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans, held at the Circuit de la Sarthe on June 16-17. These specifically created ERS zones will allow the Audi R18 e-tron Quattro and Toyota TS030 Hybrid LMP1 prototypes to recover lost energy under braking.
The wait is over to catch a glimpse of Audi’s new LMP1 Le Mans Prototype named the R18 e-tron quattro. At an event in Munich, Audi unveiled the new racer which will make its debut on May 5th in the 6-hour World Endurance Championship (WEC) race at Spa-Francorchamps and onward to the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 16/17. With this new racer, Audi has united two technologies they are testing for use on production cars: e-tron and quattro.
