    2. Congratulations to Former Audi DTM Driver Katherine Legge on Signing 2-Year Deal for IZOD IndyCar Series



      It's been more than a season since British-born Katherine Legge departed from her seat with the Audi Sport DTM squad and we've just got word that she's landed a new multi-year deal. Katherine had raced in IndyCar before so it may not be surprising that she'll be returning to the series now that it seems to have more momentum ...
    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.

    7. C4 Audi S4 Goes 242 MPH in Salt Flats Run at SpeedWeek



      When you think of Audis that would give a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport a run for its top speed money, an early 90's C4 might not be on the top of your list.
