Historic Le Mans trophy for Audi

The idea to run a 24 hour race in Le Mans was born in 1922 at the Salon de l´Automobile in Paris. Eighty years later at the same place the Automobile Club de l´Ouest (ACO), the organiser of the Le Mans 24 Hour race, have handed over the historic Le Mans trophy to AUDI AG. “Audi is proud to be the first manufacturer in the history of the Le Mans 24 Hour race to call the Le Mans trophy its own,“ declared Dr Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board at AUDI AG, who received the prestigious trophy from ACO President Michel Cosson.
