In The Moment: Audi On Pole At The Nurburgring

Frank Stippler has put the Phoenix Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra on pole for the 2013 ADAC Zurich Nürburgring 24 Hours race. The running order for the Top 40 qualifying session was drawn by lottery after the combined field of 176 cars had completed six hours out on track. The cars were sent out at short intervals to make their two qualifying runs. Stippler crossed the line to post a lap time of 8m17.212s to blitz pole, while the second placed Aston Martin Vantage GT3 was over a second back in the hands of ex-F1 driver Pedro Lamy. The 24-hour-long race is due to begin at 5.00pm Sunday Nürburg time (Sunday 11.00am PST).

In terms of aesthetics, I'd have to say the Audi R8 or the Z4 are the best of the current crop of GT3 cars.
