    1. 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. ...
    2. 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 ...
    3. 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. Video: Audi Le Mans Episode 1 with English Translation



      We ran a link to this video last week when Audi TV published it on YouTube but now an English translation has surfaced from Audi of America and given most of our readership is English-speaking we've decided to re-post. Watch it below.

    5. 24 Hours of Le Mans: Vide Overload Including Interviews, Scrutineering & More



      We're readying our final recap of Le Mans and that process includes producing a lot of content we simply didn't have time to publish in the heat of the race (though you may have seen some of this via Audi USA social media outlets as we were also contributing to them). Below are several videos we've just recently uploaded to YouTube posted in reverse chronological ...
    6. 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 ...
    7. Allan McNish Video Blog on YouTube from AutoSport.com



      When we posted a link to Allan McNish's video blog from Spa several weeks ago we were impressed by the behind the scenes view the Scot gave us even if it was out of focus, and even more impressed by how many of our readers thoroughly enjoyed the bit. So, when we ran into Allan at Le Mans we asked if he'd be continuing the video journal at ...
    8. Tweet About Audi Le Mans Victory, Win a Seat at Audi Sportscar Experience



      Unless you live under a rock you already know about Audi snapping up a 1-2-3 win at Le Mans this past weekend. In an effort to celebrate the people at Audi have dreamed up the #Audi Truth in 24 Sweepstakes whereby you re-tweeting a message about the win may net you a seat at the Audi Sportscar Experience driving the R8 around the fabulous Infineon Raceway in Napa, California. ...
    9. Audi TV Le Mans Videos via YouTube



      Audi TV has published several videos about the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans. Several are in German, but they're still worth a watch even if you don't speak it. Watch them below.





    10. Audi / Peugeot Rivalry 2010 at an End? Word Is R15 vs. 908 Battles Could Be Over.



      As we packed up our gear to head out of the Le Mans circuit on Sunday following Audi's awesome 1-2-3 victory at Le Mans in the wake of continued engine failures from the speed dominating Peugeots we found ourselves amidst a really interesting conversation with a person "in-the-know" with Peugeot and what he told us, if true, is quite significant. ...
