Audi victory in the heat of Bahrain


Audi

One-two success in the desert of Sakhir: the Audi R18 e-tron quattro won the sixth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in Bahrain. For Audi, this marked as many as five victories from six events.

It was the toughest 6-hour race of the year so far. At the beginning of the race, air temperatures were at 34 degrees with a track temperature of 45. The race that was started at 16:00 local time was predominantly held in the dark.

Audi’s hybrid technology proved extremely viable in the rough ambient conditions on taking its third victory. For the first time since Le Mans, Audi fielded two R18 e-tron quattro cars.
