WTCR-bound Audi on track in Spain
This is the second-generation Audi RS 3 LMS in action for the first time at the Circuito Parcmotor in Castellolí, Spain, earlier this week.
Frédéric Vervisch, who was recently announced as an Audi Sport-supported driver in the 2021 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup, was on board on Tuesday and Wednesday and covered 500 kilometres.
As well as completing the rollout of the Audi RS 3 LMS, Belgian Vervisch used the car’s maiden outing to conduct general component testing and set-up work, plus checking the functionality of the Marelli ECU.
A spokesperson for Audi Sport customer racing said: “The team is very satisfied with the first test kilometres of the new RS 3 LMS on the race track. All the components in focus were able to meet our expectations. With the set-up made, we have a good basis for further development tests. We were able to tick off another important development step here in Castellolí and the results so far are very promising.”
