    Back in October, Audi UK hosted a showing of Truth in 24 at the Audi quattro rooms in London, an event not to be missed with celebrity guests that included drivers Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish, as well as engineers Leena Gade and Howden Haynes. On hand at the event was Radio Le Mans' John...

    When planning the design of the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans race poster, those determining the look of the poster must've found themselves in a bit of a conundrum. Of course Audi would have to be featured as they'd only nabbed a 1-2-3 podium sweep at the 2010 race. Still, a race livery for the new...

    Earlier this week we posted an image by Endurance-Crea envisioning this year's Audi R18 race livery. Up until now the only R18s we've seen have been in Audi Sport's typical new car testing paint scheme or exposed carbon fiber and/or matte black. To see the real race colors, you'll have to wait...

    Our attention was most effectively grabbed yesterday when we spotted the shot above posted by Endurance-Crea and reposted by Audi Sport on Facebook. No, the photo is not official but until Audi Sport pulls the wraps off of its 2011 Le Mans spec R18 everyone is left guessing as to what the...

    Rumors have been floating around that Audi Sport was headed for Florida for some early testing ahead of the ILMC season opener at Sebring. Now, thanks to Floridian photographer James Boone, we can pull this story out of the rumor category. Audi Sport was on hand today at Sebring along with a few...

    Audi TV has posted this 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans recap on the Audi of America YouTube channel. Beautifully shot, this might be the closest you'll get to a Truth in 24 take on 2010... which we really wish they'd made having knocked out a 1-2-3 win and an upset at that over the much favored...

    Audi may have pulled the wraps off of its 2011 Audi R18 racer weeks ago but we've only seen it thus far in exposed black carbon. Audi Sport typically doesn't reveal its new race liveries until the earliest race weekends, especially for a new car so we know that the black car we have all seen...

    Of course when Audi pulled the wraps off of its new R18 TDI last week the car was shown in a menacing matte black and exposed black carbon fiber. Audi has a tradition of showing its new cars in the so-called buff black most preferred by evil-doers and sith lords but the car is bound to get a new...

    When we posted a link to Allan McNish's video blog from Spa several weeks ago we were impressed by the behind the scenes view the Scot gave us even if it was out of focus, and even more impressed by how many of our readers thoroughly enjoyed the bit. So, when we ran into Allan at Le Mans we...
