Sport Team Joest
Audi R8 LMP900 American LeMans Team
2002 at Mosport Int'l Speedway, I had an opportunity by invitation of Audi
Sport North America,
to spend a race week with the Joest team as a crew member - technician, and to see what it was like
to be part of the most successful sportscar racing team in the world. I can tell you It was an experience
I will never forget. I was given duties on the car such as bolt checks, cleaning and detailing, clutch change
(yes we had the trans off in about 3 minutes without even rushing!) even aerodynamic adjustments were
part of my experience. During the pit stops I did tire receiving and hand-off over the wall, assisted the
tire specialist with pressure checks and temperature readings. As you can see from the images it was a great
weekend. Please enjoy the photos of my experiences with Team Joest.
