    1. Forza 4: New Audi Sport UK Themed Liveries for R15 plus and Bentley Speed 8 / R8C



      We'll admit we're thoroughly addicted to playing Forza Motorsport 4 and driving is only half the fun. The other half is the creation of vinyl groups and livery designs that we've put up for sale on our FOURTITUDEoCOM Forza 4 store and in our Fourtitude car club within the game (friend us within the game and we'll add you to the club).

      In addition to some of our current liveries such as the 2010 R15+ #9 Le Mans ...
    2. Le Mans 2011: Huge Photo Gallery of Audi Photos And Not of the Race - R8 GT Spyder, A1 clubsport and More



      As you might imagine, the Audi presence at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is so gargantuan and target rich that you could spend a few days looking at things that have nothing to do with racecars on track.

    3. What Might Have Been: Highcroft Michelin Pilot Sport Sponsored R15 plus at Le Mans



      We really felt for Highcroft Racing and its stellar drivers when we got the news from Marino Franchitti's PR rep that the American team would pull its Honda-powered ARX-01e LMP1 out of the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Honda-powered prototype proved itself highly competitive at the 12 Hours of Sebring but the devastation in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan were likely reasons that Honda has decided to terminate ...
    4. 12 Hours of Sebring: Don't Forget to Download Your 2011 Spotter Guide by Andy Blackmore Design



      By now we'd hoped to get a nice preview up of the 12 Hours of Sebring but a very busy day including several video interviews aided in our running out of time. One portion of that preview however that we don't want to forget to pass along is that of the downloadable Spotter Guide by Andy Blackmore Design. Andy's a friend of the site and we've been featuring his work around staple events like Le Mans and like Sebring for a few ...
    5. 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 ...

      If you're a diecast die-hard then we've got a few scale model Audis you may not want to miss in a number of popular scales. Most are motorsport but some are production Audis as well.

    8. 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.
