Motorsports ranking amateurs in Shanghai

November 30, 2012

Amateur racers with a stash of cash and a need for speed are increasingly finding opportunities to get an adrenaline fix, with the launch this year of the Audi R8 LMS Cup. Audi R8 LMS (Le Mans Series) cars are identical, allowing drivers to shine on their own merit. They have a 5.2-litre, V10 engine with an output of 560hp and more than 500Nm of torque. The Cup featured 16 cars, with six amateurs taking part. Video shows the race at Shanghai International Circuit this month.
