      Via Hemmings Motor News, the availability of Hurley Haywood's #44 1989 Audi 200 quattro TRANS AM car is making the rounds on blogs and news outlets today.

    2. 24 Hours of Le Mans: Vide Overload Including Interviews, Scrutineering & More



      We're readying our final recap of Le Mans and that process includes producing a lot of content we simply didn't have time to publish in the heat of the race (though you may have seen some of this via Audi USA social media outlets as we were also contributing to them). Below are several videos we've just recently uploaded to YouTube posted in reverse chronological ...
    3. John Brooks Is "#1" in Photography Say Kristensen & McNish. Why? Check Out His Le Mans Gallery on SpeedHunters.



      For those outside of the small circle of Audi Sport or the larger circle of motorsport hyper fans, John Brooks is one very admired British-born motorsport photographer. We had the pleasure of sitting near him in the Le Mans media center and are still trying to stop using terms like "bollocks" as a result. We've been told before by guys like Tom Kristensen ...

    7. Audi / Peugeot Rivalry 2010 at an End? Word Is R15 vs. 908 Battles Could Be Over.



      As we packed up our gear to head out of the Le Mans circuit on Sunday following Audi's awesome 1-2-3 victory at Le Mans in the wake of continued engine failures from the speed dominating Peugeots we found ourselves amidst a really interesting conversation with a person "in-the-know" with Peugeot and what he told us, if true, is quite significant. ...

      Audi's been promoting the fact that an "e-tron" would lap Le Mans this week as part of a demonstration of alternative fuel vehicles shown at speed just before the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
