Marco Bonanomi on the third Audi R18 E-tron Quattro in 24h Le Mans 2014

04.02.2014: Marco Bonanomi returns to Le Mans. The italian racing driver has been chosen by Audi Sport

Marco Bonanomi returns to Le Mans. The italian racing driver has been chosen by Audi Sport as official member of german squad for the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours race, scheduled for 14-15 June.

For Bonanomi is the best award after the intensive work done in 2013 to develop the new Audi R18 e-tron quattro prototype an a return after the 3rd overall place achieved in 2012, ever with Audi Sport.

The 29 years old driver will share the Audi LMP1 official race car with Filipe Albuquerque and Oliver Jarvis, the same drivers that will run in the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (3rd May), to prepare in the best way the legendary french race.

Marco Bonanomi:
"I'm very very happy to return in Le Mans as official driver and for this I want to say thank you to Audi and Mr. Wolfgang Ullrich. With Filipe and Oliver we form a strong line-up and we can do a great job together.

 During the spring will be fundamental to work and prepare everything in the best way because Le Mans is a very hard race, and to be in Spa-Francorchamps is for sure an optimal test bench to find the best feeling looking for the 24 Hours."
