Audi's Sebring Test

Allan McNish took part in Audi's recent test session at Sebring, Florida.

Here's what he said afterwards:

“The test was conducted over four days and I have to say was quite important for us for the development of the car, not just because of the endurance side but because of performance as well.

“I got more mileage in the R18 and also did some set up work for the R15 for the race in Sebring. The R18 itself is coming along quite well and I think by the time we get to Le Mans test day we’ll have got a handle on what makes this particular car tick.”

There were three cars at the test session, two R18s and one R15 Allan, along with Tom Kristensen, Dindo Capello, Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas, Mike Rockenfeller, Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer all drove all three cars over the course of the test.

Le Mans Test Day is on April 24th, Easter Sunday, when I shall be on an aeroplane flying back from our family holiday in Tuscany. The 12 hours of Sebring is on March 19th.
