School pupils were gay about a revisit by a genuine racing motorist as prominence in a foe ‘Formula 1 during School’.

At a Audi Forum Neckarsulm, a up-and-coming teams competed opposite one another with their self-designed and built indication cars.

A word from … Tom Kristensen

The Dane was an inductee into a Hall of Fame during a Sebring 12 Hours

With 6 wins to your name, we are still a record hilt during a Sebring 12 Hour. You have now been inducted into a Hall of Fame. How critical are a foe and a respect to you?

I’m unapproachable of a respect since a Sebring 12 Hours is one of a world’s best continuation races. The circuit is an comprehensive classical with a severe aspect and severe layout. Many good foe cars have been grown into winners here. It was illusory to win a 12-hour foe with a Audi R8, R10 TDI, R15 TDI and a R18 TDI when they done their foe debuts during Sebring. we wish that a circuit retains a classical impression with a bumps and blind corners for many years to come. This is because we drivers adore a lane so much. 

The officials had another warn in store for you…

Correct! While a inclusion of new members into a Hall of Fame was announced some time ago, renaming Turn 3 into ‘Kristensen Corner’ was a genuine surprise. we unequivocally didn’t design it. Many interjection to a central during a Sebring International Raceway.

During this weekend we delved low into a story and were authorised to expostulate one of your former foe winning cars. What did we think? 

I returned again in an Audi R8. It was a illusory feeling to expostulate Audi’s many successful LMP sportscar again in front of such a outrageous throng – ‘Kristensen Corner’ in sold was good fun. we have lustful memories of a foe eleven years ago when during that time JJ Lehto, Marco Werner and we together with Frank Biela, Allan McNish, Emanuele Pirro and a Champion Racing patrol clinched a one-two. That was a final feat for a R8 during Sebring. 

After spending so many years as racing motorist during Sebring, we could suffer a eventuality as visitor. Your impressions? 

You could feel a unrestrained of a fans via a whole weekend. It goes but observant that we didn’t rubbish a eventuality to revisit a normal spectating points around a lane and to accommodate a public. we also visited a Audi Turn 1 Club, gave a lot of interviews, sealed autographs and gave my guest on a newcomer chair a feel for a circuit while lapping during speed in an Audi. One of my co-drivers was a obvious American engine racing group trainer Chip Ganassi who won a float during a gift event. It unequivocally was a smashing weekend.
