Baumgartner goes "Green Hell"
Felix Baumgartner will face a new big challenge. The Austrian, who plummeted in freefall from the stratosphere to earth in October 2012, will race an Audi R8 LMS ultra GT3 in the next ADAC Zurich 24-hour race at Nürburgring scheduled for June 19-22.
The 44-year-old will share the wheel with five-time Le Mans winner Frank Biela, triple Le Mans winner Marco Werner and the GT and sportscar professional driver Pierre Kaffer.
I consider this task to be one of the three biggest projects in my life. – declared Baumgartner.
