Six Audi customer teams field examples of both the Audi R8 LMS and ultra versions on the famous Mount Panorama between 7 and 9 February – with some prominent drivers in the cockpits. GT1 World Champion Markus Winkelhock supports his team mates Eric Lux and Mark Patterson at United Autosports. Rahel Frey, René Rast and reigning FIA GT Champion Laurens Vanthoor compete for Phoenix Racing.

The team of Mark Eddy and Marc Cini relies on the experience brought along by Christopher Mies (winner with Audi 2011 and 2012). The former touring car World Champion Rob Huff also travels to Australia, where he shares an Audi R8 LMS ultra with Rob Holland and Roland Pritzker at Rotek Racing. Team owner Rod Salmon races with Warren Luff and Jason Bright. Dean Koutsoumidis, Dean Grant, Michael Loccisano and Dean Fiore complete the R8 sextet. The race starts at 6:15 a.m. local time on Sunday.
