Sebring is all set for this weekend, with Audi making several "attacks" in "customer" cars
So who will come out tops? The Audi Owners Club has always had a good relationship with Frank Biela, having conducted numerous interviews in the past- both in the UK and Germany- but also with Perry McCarthy and the rest of the Audi Sport UK team. To be honest, as long as Audi wins, who cares? As long as they beat the "Bentley" (It's an Audi!) we're not bothered! Good luck to Perry and the guys, although I don't think they need it!

Three Audi Teams at ALMS season opener
ALMS: Next Saturday (March 15), the 12 Hour race at Sebring (Florida) marks the start of the new sportscar season. 62 cars have been entered for the opening round of the 2003 American Le Mans Series (ALMS), among them three Audi R8 sportscars from three customer teams: Champion, Joest and Audi Sport UK. “As all teams have identical technical conditions, they will have a fierce and very interesting battle,” says Head of Audi Sport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich. Because of its bumpy track and its huge starting field, Sebring is known as a highly demanding race. “Being quick at Sebring for twelve hours without any problems is a big challenge, even when you have an extremely reliable car, such as the Audi R8, that has already won at Sebring three times in a row,” says Dr Ullrich. As a result of a change in the regulations, that require smaller air restrictors for the cars in all categories, the FSI engine of the Audi R8 instead of previous 610 hp, now has an output of approximately 550 hp.

Audi Latest Project- Nuvolari- GT Vision for the Future Audi is showing its new Nuvolari quattro concept study, a vision of tomorrow’s elegant, powerful Gran Turismo, at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. It combines future Audi design philosophy and the progressive technology and dynamic road potential of a high-powered GT. With the Nuvolari quattro, Audi’s designers have created a two-door 2 + 2-seater coupé with classic GT proportions. Its lines are an evolutionary interpretation of the current repertoire of outlines typical of Audi’s styling philosophy. After the debut of the Pikes Peak quattro crossover study at the Detroit Motor Show, the Nuvolari is the second car in 2003 with which Audi shows off the future of the brand: a future notable for systematic emphasis on sporting character, highly advanced technology, unique design and emphasis on exclusiveness. Read More...

Back in 1980, Audi used the Auto Salon show in Geneva to launch the legenadary Ur quattro. It's launch changed autombile design and evolution for the future, full stop. Since then, many variants of the quattro system have been implemented, the cars have evolved, new models launched, etc. But some think Audi may have lost the automotive passion that flowed in the Ur. So what do you think? Do you think Audi will launch something new or radical 23 years on from that legendary show? Take a vote, let us know what YOU think!

For the first time in Audi history, a British-owned R8 sports car operated by Audi UK is going endurance racing, starting its career on March 15th at the annual Sebring 12-hour race in Florida, USA, before going for gold in the famous Le Mans 24-hour on the 14th and 15th of June. At the wheel of the Audi Sport UK R8 will be British duo Perry McCarthy and Jonny Kane, along with former Grand Prix driver Mika Salo, of Finland.

The all-conquering Audi R8 is today's most successful sports racing car, with three consecutive victories in the Le Mans 24 Hours and the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) already to its credit. Its staying power during these gruelling marathons has been greatly enhanced by FSI engine technology proven to maximise performance and running time between fuel stops, and now also available in road-going A2 and A4 models.
