LMES R8 Gets Modified Aerodynamics
Source: Audi Sport

Audi will unveil modified aerodynamics for the Audi R8 on Tuesday during the official Le Mans Endurance Series (LMES) test days. Whilst the previous year's regulations are valid in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS), a narrower rear wing is mandatory at Le Mans and in the 2004 LMES. Audi reworked the R8 in the wind tunnel and has made a new aerodynamic configuration available to its customer teams that retrieves some of the downforce initially lost as a result of the change.
