    1. 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 ...
    2. 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 ...
    3. 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 ...
    4. #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 ...
    5. 24 Hours of Nurburgring: Live and Direct from Audi TV



      From the looks of it, it appears that Audi TV will be broadcasting some coverage of this weekend's 24 Hours of Nurburgring live and direct via the web. Catch up with it via the link below starting Saturday.

    6. Le Mans 2011: Full Event Photo Gallery Now Live



      We'll admit, we've been jammed trying to get our Le Mans content up. A cracking race left us quite on the run in France and now we're on the west coast to drive R8s through the end of the week. It's no complaint about the entertainment value of our week but it's leaving us quite behind in getting our coverage up for you. Expect more to come of plenty we gleaned during ...
    7. Le Mans 2011: Huge Photo Gallery of Audi Photos And Not of the Race - R8 GT Spyder, A1 clubsport and More



      As you might imagine, the Audi presence at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is so gargantuan and target rich that you could spend a few days looking at things that have nothing to do with racecars on track. We've uploaded a gallery of "Miscellaneous" shots that include other portions of the Audi presence including the Audi R8 GT Spyder, Audi A1 clubsport quattro, Audi e-tron ...
    8. Video: Allan McNish Speaks about His Le Mans Accident



      We're on a crazy schedule here in Le Mans and will be publishing most of our photos and video interviews following our chance to catch our breath. However, we just attended a press conference with Allan where he spoke about his horrible accident that demolished the #3 Audi R18 TDI in the first hour of the race. We were relieved to hear Allan was unhurt (as was Rocky in the accident that destroyed the #1 car), and shot vide of the ...
    9. Le Mans 2011: Tuesday Interviews, Autograph Sessions and More



      For the fans, the highlight of Tuesday during Le Mans week has to be the autograph sessions. No doubt a tradition taken from the ALMS, early arrivals to race week have the opportunity to meet their favorite drivers such as Allan McNish (above) and grab a quick autograph.

      ...
    10. 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans: Audi Offers Miss Le Mans a Pick-Me-Up, Peugeot Drivers in Tights... and More #audi24



      2011 marks Fourtitude's sixth 24 Hours of Le Mans. And while La Sarthe continues to offer up surprises like last year's 1-2-3 Audi win, scrutineering usually isn't often at the top of the list of Le Mans' most unexpected moments. This year though, we're just two days in to race week and it's already been most memorable.

      Below are a few unforgettable ...
