Audi for years consecutively ruled the most prestigious motorsport event in history. The Le Mans 24 Hour test man and machine to it’s limits and the Germans were on quite the role until 2009 where the Peugeot team stole their crown. The French racers were set to do it again in 2010 until their cars spectacularly dropped out one-by-one leaving the gates open for some Audi revenge. This year Audi are leaving nothing to chance and hope to dominate without the help of lady luck thanks to their new R18.
The Audi R18 TDI is a big change from the previous alfresco endurance racers they produced. The 3.7 litre V6 diesel has just finished testing over in the states and baring a complete diagnostic is ready for the main event. This year will be a titanic battle between the French and the Germans both bringing all new cars and a hunger for victory. The R18 has already proven itself to be faster and more efficient than its predecessor, two traits that bode well for an endurance event.
