Five Audis to race at the 2013 MMER Sepang 12 Hours

The Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race in previous years have seen Audi R8 racing teams come very close to winning. Audi entries that took part in the races before have finished second in this event in 2010 and 2011, and now after a year’s absence, Audi cars will be returning to the MMER in 2013.

Currently five Audi R8 LMS and ultra cars are on the provisional entry list. The Audi entries are regular teams which compete in Asia, all run and supported by Absolute Racing. Two Audi R8 LMS ultra cars from GT Asia will be entered in the GT class, running within the GT3 division. Three older Audi R8 LMS cars will also be running within GT, but within the GTC division. These three cars/teams are from the Audi R8 LMS Cup. So far only one driver per Audi has been nominated, but the full entry list is expected soon, as the race is less than a month away.

Audis on the provisional entry list:
GT3
J-Fly Racing (Absolute Racing) – Audi R8 LMS ultra – Jeffrey Lee
Tunewear Racing (Absolute Racing) – Audi R8 LMS ultra – Francis Hideki Onda
GTC
Tiger Racing (Absolute Racing) – Audi R8 LMS – Jacky Yeung
Brothers Racing Team (Absolute Racing)
BRT1 – Audi R8 LMS – Ren Wei
BRT2 – Audi R8 LMS – Sun Zhen
Above in the pictures you can see the five Audis that are on the provisional entry list, and it looks like more might join this scorching endurance race. With two previous second place finishes, the top Audi teams in the race this year will be gunning for overall victory. The 2013 Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race will be taking place from 29-31 Augus
