Audi gains second place at Mid-Ohio

ALMS 2001
Emanuele Pirro in the Infineon Audi R8 #2

In a nerve-racking race at Mid-Ohio, Team Audi Sport North America learned, that it is not always the fastest car that takes the chequered flag first in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS). For almost two hours, the two Infineon Audi R8 sportscars of Rinaldo Capello/Tom Kristensen and Frank Biela/Emanuele Pirro were the dominate cars. At half distance, the third place Panoz was already a full lap behind. Still, Audi had to fight hard to finish second at the end of the 2:45 hour distance.
