Audi with good performance but lack of fortune
- Audi R18 TDI beaten below its potential at the 6-hour race
- Both cars were leading but dropped back due to collisions
- Positions two and seven after a thrilling race
The 6-hour race at Silverstone (Great Britain) in which the two Audi R18 TDI cars of Audi Sport Team Joest on positions two and seven were beaten below their performance potential was perfect advertising for the new FIA World Endurance Championship to be launched in 2012.
