24 Hours of Le Mans: Toughest race of the year for Audi

Le Mans Test Day 2016
Audi R18 (2016) #8 (Audi Sport Team Joest), Lucas di Grassi, Loïc Duval, Oliver Jarvis
  • Ten years of TDI in 18th Audi participation in Le Mans
  • Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich: “Great respect for rivals”
  • Two Audi R18 cars with experienced driver squads on grid 

Never before has Audi made so much out of so little: In its 18th Le Mans participation since 1999, Audi has less fuel energy at its disposal than ever before – and less than its competitors, as specified by the regulations. Still, the new Audi R18 LMP sports car is to battle for the top spot on June 18 and 19 thanks to notable efficiency. 13 times Audi has won the 24-hour race to date and this year the endurance classic will arguably be as tough as never before.
