The Muscle Milk Pickett Racing HPD topped the times on the second day of testing ahead of this weekend’s Sebring 12 Hours in the hands of Klaus Graf. The German set the best time of the day aboard the car he shares with Lucas Luhr and Romain Dumas in the American Le Mans Series season opener.
March 12th, 2013
Audi newcomer Lucas di Grassi ended up fastest on the first day of official testing ahead of this weekend’s Sebring 12 Hours. The Brazilian, who has been signed by Audi for 2013 after a starring performance on a one-off guest outing at last year’s Sao Paulo World Endurance Championship round, headed the timesheets on a 1m46.262s on his first acquaintance with the Sebring International Raceway. Di Grassi is sharing his Audi R18 e-tron quattro with Allan McNish and Tom Kristensen this weekend
March 8th, 2013
Audi believes this year’s Sebring 12 Hours will be an emotional occasion as the firm prepares to enter the race for the final time with LMP1 machinery. The German manufacturer has scored 10 wins in the American event, which it first entered in 1999. LMP1 cars will not be eligible at Sebring after this season, as the race will form part of the unified sportscar series (when the American Le Mans Series merges with Grand-Am) from 2014

Hexis McLaren duo Stef Dusseldorp and Fred Makowiecki ensured their status as GT1 World Championship contenders with a commanding performance in Russia. After a miserable weekend in Slovakia, where the duo failed to pick up a single point, a win in the main event at Moscow Raceway moved them to within 17 points of the championship leaders. As in the qualifying race, the championship race began behind a safety car due to the poor weather conditions.
September 2nd, 2012
Stephane Ortelli and Laurens Vanthoor claimed WRT Audi’s first World GT1 win since the opening round, as they prevailed in a damp qualifying race at Moscow Raceway. A brief burst of rain minutes beforehand forced the race to start behind the safety car, with all the cars on wet tyres. Gregoire Demoustier’s Hexis McLaren and Filip Salaquarda’s AF Corse Ferrari both missed their braking points at the first corner when the safety car came in, allowing Oliver Jarvis to take advantage and move his Audi in to the lead.

Yelmer Buurman and Michael Bartels completed a near-perfect weekend for the Vita4One BMW squad by claiming victory in the GT1 World Championship main event at the Slovakia Ring. The duo, also victorious in Saturday’s qualifying race, controlled proceedings from the outset and looked to be cruising to another BMW 1-2 finish when a late safety car interrupted proceedings. Brought out seven minutes from the flag in response to Alvaro Parente losing several chunks of rear bodywork when he ran wide at the chicane, the safety car proved acrimonious as it pulled in – unexpectedly for some – to allow a final-lap dash to the chequered flag
August 18th, 2012
The Vita4One BMWs took an ultimately comfortable one-two finish in the GT1 World Championship qualifying race at the Slovakia Ring. Team boss Michael Bartels led from pole position and initially had to fend off a four-car train, led by Markus Winkelhock’s Munnich Mercedes, with the second BMW of Mathias Lauda, WRT Audi driver Oliver Jarvis and Winkelhock’s team-mate Thomas Jager on their tails
July 7th, 2012

Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen is to make his debut in the Spa 24 Hours in the last weekend of July. The 44-year-old Dane, an eight-time winner of the Le Mans 24 Hours, will join recent double la Sarthe winners and Audi team-mates Marcel Fassler and Andre Lotterer in one of Team Phoenix’s R8 LMS ultras. “I’m hugely excited, because it’s something completely new for me,” said Kristensen
June 16th, 2012
Loic Duval put the #3 Audi R18 Ultra on top of a chaotic, rain-hit warm up ahead of the 2012 Le Mans 24 Hours. The Frenchman’s late effort ensured Audi locked out the top four positions ahead of the two Toyota TS 030 hybrids, although the Japanese marque had opted to only set two flying laps at the session’s close. The strategy seemed well judged considering the early chaos

The Hexis McLaren of Fred Makowiecki and Stef Dusseldorp completed a perfect weekend at Navarra, winning the main race of the GT1 World Championship weekend.
May 26th, 2012
Hexis Racing gave the McLaren MP4-12C its first win in international motorsport in fine style in the GT1 World Championship qualifying race at Navarra. After a stunning opening stint from Stef Dusseldorp, which saw the #1 car climb to second from the back of the grid, Fred Makowiecki took over and passed team-mate Gregoire Demoustier to move into the lead and dominate the remainder of the race. Demoustier’s co-driver Alvaro Parente had started the second McLaren, and took the lead at Turn 3 after an over-ambitious Ford GT of Milos Pavlovic had forced Mike Parisy’s Porsche wide, opening the gap for Parente to dive through
May 26th, 2012
Darryl O’Young will start on pole position for the World GT1 qualifying race at Navarra, after his Reiter Lamborghini team-mate Peter Kox set the fastest time ahead of the third round of the championship. On a circuit where the Lamborghini Murcielago has dominated in GT1′s past two visits, Kox ensured the Gallardo would continue its predecessor’s form by setting the fastest time in the opening segment of qualifying. O’Young took over and guided the car into the pole position shoot-out, where Kox finished four tenths ahead of the rest of the pack
