The Audi drivers and their cars that were successful at the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and Le Mans visited the Neckarsulm factory on Wednesday. Edward Sandström and Laurens Vanthoor, who were part of the winning quartet in the Eifel, were kept busy signing autographs during the employee event, as were Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer. The factory driver trio finished third in the Audi R18 e-tron quattro at Le Mans in June. The LMP1 sportscar, as well as the Audi R8 LMS that won at the Nürburgring – driven by Fässler and Sandström respectively – spooled off several demonstration laps around the factory premises with the enthusiastic employees looking on. The drivers were also guests at the workers' assembly.
