Lexington, August 21, 2001

The great unknown is the race in Mid-Ohio. None of the Audi drivers has competed on the circuit in the US State of Ohio before. Only Rinaldo Capello will get a first impression during this weekend´s ChampCar event. Capello will drive several demonstration laps: “I´ll try to take note of all the track´s peculiarities and pass them on to my team mates.“

Reinhold Joest, who knows the 2.258 mile circuit from contesting several races there in the early nineties, expects a tough weekend. “The track layout is unique and is certainly more difficult than Sears Point or Portland. The twisty rollercoaster passages are particularly challenging,“ he says. Tom Kristensen, who has visited Mid-Ohio as a spectator, agrees: “It´s a typical American race track - extremely narrow with uphill and downhill sections.“

Drivers and engineers face special challenges in Mid-Ohio. They have only one testing session and one free practice to optimally set-up the Infineon Audi R8 for the track. “For this reason we have to utilise every second and concentrate totally on our work. We can´t afford to waste time discussing details in the set-up, but work quickly and effectively,“ explains Head of Audi Sport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich.
