Nurburgring, Germany, At the mid way point of the race the notorious weather of the Eifel region is challenging the Audi team as rain and winds make mother nature a competitor as well.

The R8's are currently lapping the Nurburgring on rain tires as a steady down pour persists. "The beginning of the race was difficult. We had to stop for rain tires and then it became dry again," said Rinaldo Capello.

Currently the number 78 R8 driven by Biela/Pirro is running in sixth place, one lap down. The number 77 of Capello/McNish is running in ninth, two laps down to the leading Panoz of David Brabham.

Audi R8 line-up for the Nurburgring:
#77 Rinaldo Capello /Allan McNish
#78 Frank Biela/Emanuele Pirro
