    1. Audio: The Truth in 24 Interviews



      Back in October, Audi UK hosted a showing of Truth in 24 at the Audi quattro rooms in London, an event not to be missed with celebrity guests that included drivers Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish, as well as engineers Leena Gade and Howden Haynes. On hand at the event was Radio Le Mans' John Hindhaugh who interviewed each of the four and a few ...
    2. 2012 Le Mans Technical Regulations Announced Including Restrictions for Diesels plus Baretzky's Take



      The ACO has announced technical regulations for the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans and the big news revolves around performance leveling for diesels, specifically 6% less flow on restrictors for diesels.

      While at Le Mans, we spoke to Audi Sport engine czar Ullrich Baretzky about such a development and the German had an interesting take. We'll paraphrase that below, but first here are the 2012 regulations.
      ...
    3. Via Fourtitude: Le Mans Coverage. Audi Magazine. Fourtitude Writer.



      We're proud to admit we contribute to the Audi Magazine on occasion including this two-part story about Audi motorsport and Le Mans. Part 1 provides a recap on the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans. Part 2 explains why Audi races and keys it all back into the whole "Unfair Advantage" theme. ...
    4. 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster Revealed, Surprisingly Starring the Audi R15 plus.



      When planning the design of the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans race poster, those determining the look of the poster must've found themselves in a bit of a conundrum. Of course Audi would have to be featured as they'd only nabbed a 1-2-3 podium sweep at the 2010 race. Still, a race livery for the new R18 has yet to be revealed.

      So what is a French race to do in such a case? Apparently the ACO decided to go with the current ...
    5. Endurance-Crea Takes Another Stab at 2011 Audi R18 Livery



      Earlier this week we posted an image by Endurance-Crea envisioning this year's Audi R18 race livery. Up until now the only R18s we've seen have been in Audi Sport's typical new car testing paint scheme or exposed carbon fiber and/or matte black. To see the real race colors, you'll have to wait until Audi arrives with their car in Le Mans or perhaps even sooner during the official Le Mans ...
    6. More Proposed Audi R18 Liveries from Endurance-Crea



      Our attention was most effectively grabbed yesterday when we spotted the shot above posted by Endurance-Crea and reposted by Audi Sport on Facebook. No, the photo is not official but until Audi Sport pulls the wraps off of its 2011 Le Mans spec R18 everyone is left guessing as to what the car might look like in full race livery. Endurance-Crea has grabbed our attention in the past with their creative photoshoppings of ...
    7. ACO Announces 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans and ILMC Participant List. Kolles Audis and Audi-Powered Spykers Absent.



      The ACO has announced its participant lists for the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 2011 Intercontinental Le Mans Cup this morning, lists that included a few things we'd expected and confirming the fate of the privateer Kolles Audi squad... at least for 2011.

      To race at Le Mans and in the ILMC you need to be invited. In as much, Audi Sport ...
    8. New Photos Added form Audi R18 Test at Sebring



      We've gotten our hands on even more photos from the Audi Sport test session held down at Sebring last week . Among the mix you can see even more angles of the evil-looking new Audi R18 racer as well as shots of regular faces you'd expect to see when Audi Sport comes to town including Tom Kristensen, Timo Bernhard, Dindo Capello and Mike Rockenfeller. We've posted all of the new shots below or check out the entire collection ...
    9. Audi R18 and R15 plus Hit Kick Asphault in Sebring Test



      Rumors have been floating around that Audi Sport was headed for Florida for some early testing ahead of the ILMC season opener at Sebring. Now, thanks to Floridian photographer James Boone, we can pull this story out of the rumor category. Audi Sport was on hand today at Sebring along with a few other teams doing their first (semi) public shakedowns of both last year's R15 plus and two Audi R18s marked #1 and #2.

      ...
    10. Video: Truth in 24... 2010 Edition



      Audi TV has posted this 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans recap on the Audi of America YouTube channel. Beautifully shot, this might be the closest you'll get to a Truth in 24 take on 2010... which we really wish they'd made having knocked out a 1-2-3 win and an upset at that over the much favored Peugeot team. This isn't done in the trademark NFL Films style but it was ...
