ALMS Logo

The penultimate round of the 2010 American Le Mans series saw Porsche teams respond to mounting pressure in in both LMP and GT categories.

After setting the pace during qualifying, CytoSport’s duo of Klaus Graf and Porsche works driver Romain Dumas would go on to take victory at the historic Canadian circuit. Championship rivals, Patron Highcroft finished a close second. The solid points haul for both teams ensures the LMP title race will be decided at the Petit Le Mans season finale in early October.

After inheriting the pole as a result of Risi’s misfortune, the Flying Lizard #45 squad performed in a manner of relentless pace and brutal consistency now characteristic with the team. The performance ensured Bergmeister/Long their fourth victory of the 2010 season, enabling the reigning GT2 champions to extend their points lead over closest championship rivals, Risi Competizione to margin of 22 points.

With only several weeks remaining until the inaugural running of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, AudiSport has revealed its driver lineups for a planned two car attack on the new manufacturer-focused challenge.

Due to a combination of varying driver obligations and changed sporting regulations, Audi has opted against static lineups and will alter driver combinations on a per event basis.

Eight time-Le Mans winner, Tom Kristensen will partner Alan McNish at both Silverstone and Zuhai rounds of the challenge. While Dindo Capello will join Timo Bernhard in the #8 at Silverstone.

The Petit Le Mans event will see the squad return to a traditional endurance lineup of three drivers per car. With Capello joining Kristensen/McNish in the #7, and Fässler, Lotterer, and Treluyer reuniting in the #8 entry.

Returning to two drivers per chassis once more in Zuhai, Kristensen/McNish will remain in the #7, with Capello returning to the #8 now alongside Romain Dumas.

Audi Motorsport Director, Wolfgang Ullrich had the following to say regarding the lineups:

“Because there’s only a make and team but no driver classification we’re using the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup as an opportunity to integrate the drivers who haven’t competed for us very often, even better with our team. Our aim is to compete at Le Mans in 2011 with the same drivers as this year.”

Driver lineup listings can be seen on a per event basis below:

  • 1000KM Silverstone (UK) – 12 September.
    – #7 Tom Kristensen/Allan McNish
    – #8 Timo Bernhard/Dindo Capello
  • Petit Le Mans, Road Atlanta (USA) – 02 October.
    – #7 Dindo Capello/Tom Kristensen/Allan McNish
    – #9 Marcel Fässler/André Lotterer/Benoît Treluyer
  • 6 Hours of Zhuhai (CN) – 07 November.
