With a dramatic finish at the “Petit Le Mans“, round nine of the American Le Mans-Series (ALMS), Audi took its fourth 1-2 victory of the season. The Audi R8 of Michele Alboreto, Rinaldo Capello and Allan McNish clearly won the 1000 mile race at Road Atlanta. Team mates Frank Biela, Tom Kristensen and Emanuele Pirro in the companion R8 had to fight hard until the very last corner of a total of 394 laps: After a collision with the Panoz halfway through the race the diffusor of the number 78 car was damaged. Nevertheless the Audi trio with their ill handling car defended a margin of just five tenths of a second to the leading Panoz to the finish line.
