    1. 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 ...
    2. Choice Gear: Old School Le Mans Timing with TAG Heuer STH810 Stop Watch



      Yes, you can probably time an Audi R15 TDI's (or your buddy's track day B5 S4's) lap time with the iPhone in your pocket and official lap times at events like Le Mans are not hard to monitor. Still, there's a history and romance in the round steel stop watch timing pace at a track that just rings pure in our hearts. And if it's Le Mans where you're doing the timing, ...

    4. Heffner Performance Builds and Tests Twin Turbo, PPI-kitted Audi R8 at Miller Motorsports Park



      When we first met Jason Heffner down at APR headquarters last spring we were completely impressed. Rather laid back and unassuming, the guy is a bit of a sleeper when you consider he's the mastermind behind twin turbo cars such as the Lamborghini Gallardo, Ford GT and of course the Audi R8. We've just run across a build thread from TeamSpeed along with video of one of Jason's most recent builds where he flew to Utah's Miller ...
    5. Audi 'Truth in Motion' Star and Olympic Gold Medalist Lindsey Vonn Nabs ESPY Award for Best Female Athlete



      To echo Matthew Broderick from Biloxi Blues this summer is Africa hot, Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot. So okay, maybe skiing isn't the first thing that comes to mind when thinking hot... at least until maybe you consider US Ski Team ace and Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn.

      In case you missed it, Lindsey starred in Audi's 'Truth in Motion' documentary ...

    9. Accessories Program Revealed for Audi A7



      While in Munich last week for Audi's A7 reveal we picked up a copy of the sales literature for the car. S-line photos from the book have been making their rounds since the day after the reveal but we've found a few additional interesting shots toward the back of the book highlighting the Audi Accessories line for the car.

      There are just three shots and, as ...
