It is no secret that I'm an Audi fanatic. My blog is mostly going to be about German cars, I drive a Volkswagen, and I'm even taking German 101 this coming fall.
It is also no secret that Audi dominates at 24 Hours of Le Mans, and has so for the last ten years. This year will be no different, in fact it'll be easier. Their main competition, Peugeot, has dropped out of the race. They have also left manufacturer racing entirely because they can no longer afford the venture.
So who will be left to stand between Audi and the title? This year it will be Nissan with the Delta Wing and Toyota with the TS030. Not to mention that Audi themselves have a brand new weapon, the R18 e-tron.
These two cars thrown in against Audi will make for an exciting race, invariably worthy of a movie no doubt?
See three years ago, when Peugeot had a car that was significantly faster than the old R15, a documentary of Audi's race season was made, "Truth in 24", and this year they will be making another one of these documentaries.
If you are a fan of Audi, racing, Le Mans, or any sort of combinations of the three, I suggest you watch it. It is 90 minutes of pure adrenaline, watching one of the best teams and one of the best cars attack Sebring, Monza, and Le Mans.
Remember, Le Mans is on June 16th, so stay tuned to hear more about the race and Audi!
Go Team Joest!
