Paul Ricard, France
Official Test


-A scary car

-I'm not sure if I want these front lights in my mirror down the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans, Thor-Christian Ebbesvik said after he had seen the new Audi R18 for the first time.

Thor-Christian Ebbesvik is working hard these days to secure the budget to race his second season in the Le Mans Series. He also wants to do the 24 hour race at Le Mans, and one of the competitors will be the Audi factory team with the new R18.

-I'm probably going to drive in the LMP2-class, and then I will get passed by the R18. I think it looks scary, and I guess everyone will keep away when those front lights are coming behind you down the Mulsanne straight!

The new Audi R18 will fight for the overall win, and Thor-Christian Ebbesvik is hoping to fight for the class-win in LMP2.

More information about the 2011-season will come later.
