McNish expects tough title defence

Allan McNish believes that Audi will face stiff opposition in 2007 as they attempt to defend their American Le Mans Series crown.

The Scot won the championship with Dindo Capello in the first year of racing for the diesel-powered Audi R10, and the manufacturer has confirmed that it will enter two cars for the full season this year.

The R10 was undefeated in seven ALMS outings last year, but McNish believes that the improving LMP2 field could provide some of Audi's main opposition in 2007.

"I know that a record-breaking and history-making season does not come along often," he said.

"With new cars from Acura and Porsche in the championship I expect a very tough fight in 2007, but everyone at Audi relishes a challenge."

McNish and Capello will attempt to defend their title together, while Emanuele Pirro will be joined by series returnee Marco Werner in the second R10.
