First Audi R8 test for Mika Salo
Finnish driver Mika Salo completed his first test with the Audi R8 at
Snetterton (England) on Monday. The former Formula One driver competes in
the 12 Hours of Sebring and the Le Mans 24 Hour race for the Audi Sport UK
team. ?I hadn´t been to Snetterton for 13 years, it was cold and damp and I
was driving a sports racing car for the first time ? difficult conditions,?
explained Salo. ?But my first impressions of the Audi R8 are very
favourable. The car seems easy to drive.?
Mika Salo will have his first race with the Audi R8 on March 15 at Sebring.
A total of three Audi R8 sports cars will compete at the opening round of
the American Le Mans Series (ALMS). Salo joins Jonny Kane and Perry
