      Of course when Audi pulled the wraps off of its new R18 TDI last week the car was shown in a menacing matte black and exposed black carbon fiber. Audi has a tradition of showing its new cars in the so-called buff black most preferred by evil-doers and sith lords but the car is bound to get a new paint job or "livery" in racing speak though when that will first appear remains to be seen. Given ...
    2. Excellent Audi R18 Technical Analysis from SPEED's Marshall Pruett



      As Audi's new R18 rapidly approached its unveiling last Friday this blog zeroed in on SPEED contributor Marshall Pruett. Pruett seemed more clued in than most in the general public or press about the car and relayed to our staff that he'd spent countless hours on the phone to Germany working on a technical analysis of the new car. Over the weekend Pruett published his story, rife with details Audi Sport ...

      Earlier today Audi Sport revealed its new and revolutionary Audi R18 racecar.

    5. American Le Mans 2011: Audi at Sebring, Petit Le Mans Rounds Only



      Spending the weekend on location at the American Le Mans Series' Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta this past weekend we were immersed in news about any potential Audi LMP participation for the 2011 season via Audi Sport staff. There's both good news and bad news to report.

      SPEED Friday released a news story surrounding Audi's exploration of options for the 2011 racing season.

    7. Caption This 24 Hours of Le Mans Edition: Re-Thinking Timo & The Lions



      We get some photos via our various sources that make us scratch our heads and some that simply make us laugh aloud. This is usually followed by an attempt to caption what's going on. So why not apply to the above? I was just revisiting our photo gallery from the 1000 km of Spa earlier this season. At the time this was just an odd photo, but given this year's equally ...

      One of the things we love about computer platform racing games is the likelihood that they'll be modified by their users. Want a new track? No problem. Like a new car that's not in the game? We'll just see about that. Case in point is that of the Audi R15 TDI racecar and the video game Need for Speed Shift.

      Granted, you need to know your way around the video game installation, but still... This latest R15 TDI was ...

    10. Allan McNish Video Blog on YouTube from AutoSport.com



      When we posted a link to Allan McNish's video blog from Spa several weeks ago we were impressed by the behind the scenes view the Scot gave us even if it was out of focus, and even more impressed by how many of our readers thoroughly enjoyed the bit. So, when we ran into Allan at Le Mans we asked if he'd be continuing the video journal at ...
