      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 ...
    2. 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.

    5. 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 ...

      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.

      With Audi Sport representing the only Audi or Audi-powered cars on the grid this year and also a Monday scrutineering slot, Sunday at scrutineering wasn't terribly momentous for Audi fans watching Le Mans week make its anticipated beginning.
