Audi Sport has announced that five Audi LMS cars will challenge at Mount Panorama for the Bathurst 12 Hour. Audi won the manufacturers’ classification for the third consecutive time in 2018.

The two Audi R8 LMS cars of Audi Sport Team Valvoline spearhead the line-up. Audi Sport Team MPC is putting two further Audi R8 LMS cars on the grid. Team Matt Stone Racing completes the group of Audi customer teams.

Three additional GT3 sports cars complete the brand’s presence at Bathurst. Since 2011, GT3 cars have been permitted to race in the Bathurst 12 Hour.

“We can hardly imagine a more atmospheric opener of the Intercontinental GT Challenge than this race at Bathurst,” said Chris Reinke, head of Audi Sport customer racing. “Another victory is our declared goal, but the competition this year is fiercer than ever before.”
