Audi is bringing to the 12 Hours of Sebring two R18 e-tron quattro cars before the end of the LMP1 class set for next year.

Aside from using a 2012 model, Audi will also race an updated version of the prototype in Florida. The cars will be driven by Marcel Fässler/Oliver Jarvis/Benoît Tréluyer and Lucas di Grassi/Tom Kristensen/Allan McNish. Kristensen has already managed to win six times, making him the current record holder.

Audi entered the event for the first time on March 20, 1999 when three of the team's drivers were on the podium: Michele Alboreto/Dindo Capello/Stefan Johansson. In its 13-year run, Audi grabbed 22 podium finishes including 10 overall victories.

The 12 Hours of Sebring is scheduled for March 16.
