Les Belles Voitures

Dominating endurance racing for a decade, Audi is here to stay. When asked whether Audi has considered participating in Formula 1, Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich counters that very little trickles from F1 into production cars anymore.

"Audi has always been engaged in motorsport that’s relevant to our customers such as rallying and touring cars, which brought quattro, FSI and TFSI to our road cars."

The dynamism of LeMans is second to none. Race cars of varying regulatory parameters, shapes and abilities, albeit all purpose built, race across Circuit de la Sarthe together.

Moreover, while F1's open wheel format displays a relatively linear progression in race car technology, the LeMans' prototype class possess a distinctive character from era to era.
