- Duval/Kristensen/McNish achieve historic milestone for Audi
- Audi R18 e-tron quattro remains unbeaten in 2013
- Le Mans winners extend lead of the standings
Audi achieved a historic milestone on the Texan debut of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) at Austin. The squad of Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich celebrated the 100th overall victory of an LMP sports car of the brand. The event has a parallel, as Audi had clinched its first-ever victory in America as well – at Sebring, on March 18, 2000. Back then and today, it was Audi Sport Team Joest that fielded the victorious race car and, back then and today, Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen was part of the successful Audi driver squad.
