Stefan Johansson took Audi's R8C out for testing at Hockenheim last week,
but not for long. The day was brought to a premature close as he took an
excursion at the first corner when the brakes locked up. Frontal damage to
the car forced its return to the UK for repairs.
Before Johansson's drive, Christian Abt took the wheel of the car for the
first time. Abt is replacing Didier Theys in the British team at Le Mans
James Weaver, Andy Wallace and Perry McCarthy all drove their R8C cars
during the three-day test in Germany, which was also attended by the Audi
Sport Team Joest cars.
Audi will be testing again this week at Paul Ricard with Weaver and McCarthy
scheduled to drive their regular chassis.
