Audi well prepared for Nurburgring 24 Hours


The teams of Audi Sport customer racing are entering the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring thoroughly prepared. In the final Top-30 qualifying, the two best Audi R8 LMS cars clinched grid positions in the top ten while all six teams completed their programs for preparation.

The Eifel showed its whimsical side on Friday. A thunderstorm in the afternoon gave the teams a foretaste of a weekend with a changeable weather forecast. The track that was still partially wet in the final qualifying session made for tricky conditions. The best driver from Audi Sport customer racing was Frank Stippler. In his home round, the 41-year-old pro from Bad Münstereifel achieved the fifth-best time in the Audi R8 LMS for Phoenix Racing. The Dutchman Robin Frijns clinched grid position ten for Belgian Audi Club Team WRT, trailed by René Rast (Audi Sport Team Phoenix) in position 16, Pierre Kaffer (Audi Sport Team WRT) in 22nd place following a puncture, and Marc Basseng (montaplast by Land-Motorsport) in position 25. Christian Mamerow (Twin Busch Motorsport), after an accident, only took 30th place.

Townsend Bell Credits Full-Time IMSA Status as a Reason for Indy 500 Competitiveness

Townsend Bell Credits Full-Time IMSA Status as a Reason for Indy 500 Competitiveness


Steven Cole Smith, IMSA Wire Service

Is there much similarity between driving the Lamborghini Huracán Townsend Bell races regularly in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, and the Andretti Autosport-Robert Graham Honda IndyCar he qualified fourth for Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 at 230.481 mph?

"Well," he says, "they both have steering wheels…"

That Bell is able to compete full-time in the WeatherTech Championship, where he and co-driver Bill Sweedler won the season championship in the GT Daytona class in 2015 in a Scuderia Corsa Ferrari, and still be competitive in his once-a-year IndyCar start at Indianapolis is less surprising than it sounds.

He began his career in open-wheel cars, in the Skip Barber series, and moved up to Indy Lights, then in 2000, to the CART series. In 2003, he raced in the Formula 3000 series, and was a test driver for Formula 1 teams. The next year he returned stateside for a full-time ride in IndyCar.
