The Audians at the Neckarsulm plant experienced Le Mans flair at their place of work on Thursday. The Frenchman Loïc Duval who had taken third place in the Le Mans 24 Hours in June with his teammates, Lucas di Grassi and Oliver Jarvis, did a lap in the Audi R18 on the plant premises. Subsequently, the former Le Mans winner signed autographs for the workforce and met with employees of the race engine department as well. The near-514-hp V6 TDI engine of the Audi R18 is produced in Neckarsulm.
