The two Audi R18 LMP1 prototypes completed a total of 138 laps at the official Le Mans test day yesterday. Equating to a highly respectable 1,881 kilometers, Brazilian Lucas di Grassi, who starts with Loïc Duval (F) and Oliver Jarvis (GB), set a 3m 21.375s lap to record the fastest time of the day with the #8 car.

The sister car of Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer lost about two hours in the afternoon due to changing a damper on the front axle and finished the day fourth overall.

“Nevertheless, we achieved some important targets and are already well advanced with the set-up of our race cars,” said Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Ullrich.
