World Endurance Championship
A new global challenge
Audi competes in a World Championship for the first time since 1987. Prototype racing has found a new home in the FIA World Endurance Championship, WEC. “At Audi we have been of the opinion for a long time now that the sport prototypes deserved a World Championship reflecting the importance of this class of car,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich happily.
In addition to the LMP1 class prototypes, the smaller LMP2 sportsc ars and GT2 cars also compete in their own dedicated classification in the WEC making the series even more varied. The new World Championship’s calendar includes the important regions worldwide.
