    1. Roger Penske Mentions Audi Drivers Bernhard, Dumas and Rockenfeller When Asked About Interest in Le Mans with Porsche



      Motorsport mogul Roger Penske made an appearance on this week's 'Wind Tunnel' with Dave Despain. The Speed commentator asked Roger any number of questions covering NASCAR, Indycar and more, though it was his comments about Le Mans that grabbed our interest. Of course Penske was the team owner behind the factory Porsche RS Spyder ...
    2. Audi 5-cyl Powered 'Super Chicken' Brings Four Rings and Mad Max Element to Mt. Washington Hillclimb



      Audiworld.com has run a report from the recent Mount Washington Hillclimb. The event has long been associated with Audi and quattros have been taking on the mountain for decades. Even more interesting this year is the more Mad Max looking 'Super Chicken' run this year by Vermont native Paul Tingaud. Running a tuned Audi 5-cylinder and not much else in regards to mass, Paul took home third overall. Read more about it ...

    4. Audi Sport's Le Mans Winning Engineer Leena Gade Catches up with MINI Rally Engineer Sister at Goodwood



      Having just won Le Mans, we were surprised no shots of Audi R18 chief engineer Leena Gade had filtered through from Imola. Then, we caught this story from the Telegraph and all was clear. Seems Leena attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend and managed to catch up with sister Teena whom she'd mentioned in our Le Mans video interview. Teena's the lead engineer on Kris Meeke's MINI WRC car, and the two managed a ...
    5. Video: Catching up with Leena Gade of Audi Sport, 24 Hours before the 24 Hours



      Having just recently become the first woman to win Le Mans as lead engineer of a racing team, Leena Gade has solidly placed herself on the radar of more than just Audi enthusiasts. Being an engineer at a team like Audi doesn't hurt either, where her colleagues like Howden Haynes and Brad Kettler take on more of a known rule than their counterparts ...
    6. Cue "Eye of the Tiger". Rocky's Back.



      Just like the character in the movie that bears his nickname, Mike Rockenfeller (a.k.a. Rocky) has figuratively gotten back up and dusted himself off following a truly terrifying wreck in Le Mans. Depicted in the video below, the accident that saw his #1 Audi R18 TDI demolished seemed the stuff of real tragedy. Fortunately, the young German driver walked away with minor injuries. Even better, Rocky is back at the Norisring this ...
    7. Watch Imola Live online Via Audi AG Plus New Silver Livery for R18 #1



      The harder core of the motorsport fans on this site will recall with chagrin the distribution of the video feed from the 12 Hours of Sebring... or the lack thereof. Seems the folks at Audi are among that group because they've been quick to stream races ever since. Beginning with Le Mans and experienced just last week with the Nurburgring 24 Hours, those with a quick-enough connection have been able to watch the action via an Audi ...
    8. On His Way to Becoming "Mr. Nurburgring", Timo Bernhard



      When Tom Kristensen went and broke Jacky Ickx's all-time wins record at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Dane earned his nickname "Mr. Le Mans". One might note there is no current "Mr. Nurburgring", but Audi Sport regular Timo Bernhard is working on it thanks to his win this past weekend at the wheel ...
    9. #N24 2011: ADAC 24h Classic Photo Gallery Added



      We've just added to our 2011 24 Hours of Nurburgring photo gallery with a collection of shots form the ADAC 24h Classic vintage race. As is typical of the grid for the 24h main event, the grid for the classic was an eclectic mix of metal and alloy. For Audi fans, we noted a thin mix that included this NSU TTS (above) and the car below that may be a Volkswagen ...
