    News and more from the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

    1. Peugeot Factory Ace Anthony Davidson Lands at Toyota as Opposition Builds for Audi Sport



      The Lion may have left the party but don't count 2012 as walk-away year for Audi. Fans of the newly-formed World Endurance Challenge lamented Peugeot's sudden departure and many hope competition from Toyota will make for an exciting race... or legendary rivalry even. Well, those fans will be pleased to see that these hopes are quickly becoming ...

    3. Fourtitude's Pick for Fourth Audi R18 at Le Mans: Team Needs an American



      Having just welcomed in a new year, we find ourselves in that limbo where one racing season has ended and plans for the new racing season have yet to begin. Audi has shown they're already testing the latest evolution of the R18 in Sebring, and rumors have not surprisingly begun to swirl. In short, we've heard Ingolstadt could field ...

      Here's to an enjoyable and successful new year to all of our readers and also to the executives and workers at Audi as well as the team at Audi Sport.

      Here at Fourtitude, we've got big plans for 2012, including a full site redesign with plenty of new resources and functionality. We've been holed up through the holiday break feverishly working on the accomplishment of that goal and hope to share it with you very ...
    5. 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.

    6. More Updates, Rumors and Pics Stemming from LMP1 Test at Sebring



      We've got a few more nuggets for those following closely the Audi Sport test in Sebring this week. First, we're hearing a rumor from an often reliable source outside of Audi that there may be four R18s on the grid at Le Mans. This would include two R18 TDIs and two R18 hybrids (presumably hybrid TDIs).

      Another rumor from the same source is that 2010 Oreca Peugeot driver Loic Duval ...
    7. More Information on 2012 Audi LMP1 Including Hybrid Intel and Possible "R18H" Name



      Earlier today Fourtitude published PR photos and a press release issued by Audi Sport about a test this week in Sebring of Audi's 2012 LMP1 conspicuously not referred to as "R18" .

    8. Video(s): Audi Sport's Leena Gade in Profile



      By this time, we doubt Audi Sport engineer Leena Gade needs any introduction. As the first female engineer to win Le Mans (this year with the R18 TDI's momentous win), she's earned her place in the motorsport lexicon and the spotlight turned its way in her direction.

      Audi of America has produced several video shorts ...
    9. Video: Team McKristenomi Expands Audi's Endurance Offering

      You might remember a few weeks ago that Audi Sport drivers Allan McNish, Tom Kristensen and Marco Bonanomi got together for a triathlon in Allan's home town of Monaco. "Team McKristenomi" was the name of their effort, complete with team shirts sporting Audi fonts and a moniker of the Brangelina variety. More subtly, you have to wonder if this wasn't a team building exercise for Audi Sport.
