    1. Audi Releases Livery Pictures of R18 Ahead of Sunday's Le Mans Test



      Audi has dropped a collection of photos from a recent test at Paul Riccard of the R18 testing with what appears to be full livery paint schemes. Interestingly, there's more than just the different access colors if these are the final paint schemes as cars like the #3 above seem to have more silver and less exposed carbon than cars like the #1 shown below. ...

      Since last week when we attended the R18 test at Sebring Raceway following the running of the 12 Hours, we've been doing our best to push out as much content as possible. While we're not quite done (expect a written report and more photos), we've now uploaded a 500 pic photo gallery , some B-Roll footage of the car on track and some interview clips with ...
    4. Via Fourtitude: Le Mans Coverage. Audi Magazine. Fourtitude Writer.



      We're proud to admit we contribute to the Audi Magazine on occasion including this two-part story about Audi motorsport and Le Mans. Part 1 provides a recap on the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans. Part 2 explains why Audi races and keys it all back into the whole "Unfair Advantage" theme. ...
    5. ACO Announces 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans and ILMC Participant List. Kolles Audis and Audi-Powered Spykers Absent.



      The ACO has announced its participant lists for the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 2011 Intercontinental Le Mans Cup this morning, lists that included a few things we'd expected and confirming the fate of the privateer Kolles Audi squad... at least for 2011.

    6. Nissan Joins ILMC and LMS. P2 Means No Direct Audi Competition but New Factory Good for Sport



      John Hindhaugh and the chaps at Radio Le Mans mentioned Nissan more times than one can count last year during their coverage of the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans. At the time Nissan was a sponsor, but it seemed certain they knew something was afoot. Could it have been a Z or GTR in GT2? Apparently not. This morning Nissan announced it'd join the ILMC and LMS for the 2010 season... at least as engine supplier... with Signature Racing ...

    8. Audi R18 and R15 plus Hit Kick Asphault in Sebring Test



      Rumors have been floating around that Audi Sport was headed for Florida for some early testing ahead of the ILMC season opener at Sebring. Now, thanks to Floridian photographer James Boone, we can pull this story out of the rumor category. Audi Sport was on hand today at Sebring along with a few other teams doing their first (semi) public shakedowns of both last year's R15 plus and two Audi R18s marked #1 and #2.

    9. Video: Truth in 24... 2010 Edition



      Audi TV has posted this 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans recap on the Audi of America YouTube channel. Beautifully shot, this might be the closest you'll get to a Truth in 24 take on 2010... which we really wish they'd made having knocked out a 1-2-3 win and an upset at that over the much favored Peugeot team. This isn't done in the trademark NFL Films style but it was ...
