Audi R18 TDI to get Spa 'dress rehearsal'

Audi's new R18 TDI prototype Le Mans car will take part in its first race this weekend, with a 'dress rehearsal' at the Spa 1000km race.

The team will use the chance to try out its all-new car and V6 TDI engine in anger whilst competitor Aston Martin has to decided to sit the Spa race out after its embarrassing Le Mans test day last month.
