Le Mans, Lime Rock, and Brands Hatch – the run of Audi wins in motorsport continued on the first weekend in July. Audi celebrated its 50th victory in the American Le Mans Series during the Audi R8 prototype’s final race only a fortnight after the historical maiden victory of a diesel powered sportscar at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Only 15 hours after crossing the finishing line at Lime Rock, yet another Audi driver, Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi A4 DTM), mounted the top step of the podium at the British DTM round at Brands Hatch.
