The two 24-hour races, held simultaneously at Le Mans and at the Nürburgring, ended with a 1-2-3 victory for Audi in France. In the French endurance classic, the Audi importer teams Audi Sport Japan Team Goh, Audi Sport UK Team Veloqx and Team ADT Champion Racing finished first, second, third and fifth with their Audi R8 sports cars. One hour earlier, at the Nürburgring, Infineon Team Abt Sportsline had achieved 4th and 8th place-finishes with their pair of Abt-Audi TT-R touring cars. “I am proud of the whole Audi team,” declared Head of Audi Motorsport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich after Audi’s fourth triumph in the most important endurance race of the world. “The race at Le Mans was open until the very last lap, and every minute was exciting. The Nürburgring 24 Hours has been one of the most difficult races in history due to the weather conditions.”
