      Congratulations are in order for our friend Eric Gilbert from Motorsport.com who's won the The Sarthe Endurance Photo competition with this beautiful shot of two Audi R18s slicing through the quiet French countryside during pre-race practice last June.

    5. Video(s): Audi Sport's Leena Gade in Profile



      By this time, we doubt Audi Sport engineer Leena Gade needs any introduction. As the first female engineer to win Le Mans (this year with the R18 TDI's momentous win), she's earned her place in the motorsport lexicon and the spotlight turned its way in her direction.

      Audi of America has produced several video shorts ...

As editor of Fourtitude I've had the chance to sample cars like the R8 GT , the R8 V12 TDI Le Mans Concept , the Audi quattro Concept and even an early A5 drivetrain mule of the latter dubbed "The Beast" . It's rare that I'm green with envy, but that's exactly the case with pre-eminent driving connoisseur buff book EVO Magazine out of the UK... for the THIRD time. ...

    9. Audi Sport's Le Mans Winning Engineer Leena Gade Catches up with MINI Rally Engineer Sister at Goodwood



      Having just won Le Mans, we were surprised no shots of Audi R18 chief engineer Leena Gade had filtered through from Imola. Then, we caught this story from the Telegraph and all was clear. Seems Leena attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend and managed to catch up with sister Teena whom she'd mentioned in our Le Mans video interview. Teena's the lead engineer on Kris Meeke's MINI WRC car, and the two managed a ...
    10. Video: Catching up with Leena Gade of Audi Sport, 24 Hours before the 24 Hours



      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.
