Audi joined the list of winners of the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time in the year 2000. A historic moment for the brand with the four rings. Tom Kristensen was one of the three drivers of the victorious Audi R8 at that time. Fifteen years after the important victory, Kristensen and the original car returned to the French track to participate in a parade of famous Le Mans cars. The Le Mans record winner even reactivated the helmet and race overalls used at that time for the historical event.
