    5. Audi Confirms Truth in 24 II Documentary about 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans



      It looks like the cat is out of the bag. Audi's microsite for its documentary Truth in 24 ( http://www.truth-in-24.com/ ) now shows a graphic for its sequel to the NFL Films directed documentary about the 2008 24 Hours of Le Mans.

This is Sebring after all, where world class (Audi R8 LMP1 x 3) meets low class (Ford Pinto... no offense to the owner, it's kind of cool). We've got shots of the Audis ...
