    1. Endurance-Crea Takes Another Stab at 2011 Audi R18 Livery



      Earlier this week we posted an image by Endurance-Crea envisioning this year's Audi R18 race livery. Up until now the only R18s we've seen have been in Audi Sport's typical new car testing paint scheme or exposed carbon fiber and/or matte black. To see the real race colors, you'll have to wait until Audi arrives with their car in Le Mans or perhaps even sooner during the official Le Mans ...
    2. More Proposed Audi R18 Liveries from Endurance-Crea



      Our attention was most effectively grabbed yesterday when we spotted the shot above posted by Endurance-Crea and reposted by Audi Sport on Facebook. No, the photo is not official but until Audi Sport pulls the wraps off of its 2011 Le Mans spec R18 everyone is left guessing as to what the car might look like in full race livery. Endurance-Crea has grabbed our attention in the past with their creative photoshoppings of ...
    3. 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.

      To race at Le Mans and in the ILMC you need to be invited. In as much, Audi Sport ...
    4. New Photos Added form Audi R18 Test at Sebring



      We've gotten our hands on even more photos from the Audi Sport test session held down at Sebring last week . Among the mix you can see even more angles of the evil-looking new Audi R18 racer as well as shots of regular faces you'd expect to see when Audi Sport comes to town including Tom Kristensen, Timo Bernhard, Dindo Capello and Mike Rockenfeller. We've posted all of the new shots below or check out the entire collection ...
    5. 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.

    6. Rendered Speculation: 2011 Audi R18 Race Livery Found on Facebook



      Audi may have pulled the wraps off of its 2011 Audi R18 racer weeks ago but we've only seen it thus far in exposed black carbon. Audi Sport typically doesn't reveal its new race liveries until the earliest race weekends, especially for a new car so we know that the black car we have all seen will eventually be painted and likely in the usual mix of silver, red, black, ...
    7. Audi R18 with a Painted Livery Imagined by Joao Pedro Ferreira + Matte Black Audi LMP Retrospective



      Of course when Audi pulled the wraps off of its new R18 TDI last week the car was shown in a menacing matte black and exposed black carbon fiber. Audi has a tradition of showing its new cars in the so-called buff black most preferred by evil-doers and sith lords but the car is bound to get a new paint job or "livery" in racing speak though when that will first appear remains to be seen. Given ...
    8. Video: Audi R18 Reveal Ceremony Footage from DailySportscar.com



      DailySportscar.com was one of the few English publications to attend the unveiling of the new Audi R18 le mans car last Friday and has published several videos from the event.

    9. Excellent Audi R18 Technical Analysis from SPEED's Marshall Pruett



      As Audi's new R18 rapidly approached its unveiling last Friday this blog zeroed in on SPEED contributor Marshall Pruett. Pruett seemed more clued in than most in the general public or press about the car and relayed to our staff that he'd spent countless hours on the phone to Germany working on a technical analysis of the new car. Over the weekend Pruett published his story, rife with details Audi Sport ...
    10. Video: Audi Sport Engine Boss Ulrich Baretzky on the Past and Future of Audi at Le Mans



      Earlier today Audi Sport revealed its new and revolutionary Audi R18 racecar. While we haven't had a chance to chat first hand with any of the team just yet we did have a chance to sit down for an in-depth conversation with Dr. Ulrich Baretzky while in Atlanta for the 2010 Petit Le Mans race. Of course ...
