    While in Sebring we had the pleasure of meeting Drive's motorsport guru Leo Parente (who told us he's a Fourtitude regular... thanks Leo!). We weren't surprised that the conversation would be both surrounding motorsport and tremendously interesting, and we further weren't very surprised to see...

    One of our favorite elements of a European industry motor show is the on-stand boutique. Europeans must love their branded swag because most car companies including Audi plan on a shop full of goods as part of their auto show stand. At every show we usually take a close look at the shop to see...

    The Lion may have left the party but don't count 2012 as walk-away year for Audi. Fans of the newly-formed World Endurance Challenge lamented Peugeot's sudden departure and many hope competition from Toyota will make for an exciting race... or legendary rivalry even. Well, those fans will be...

    It's been more than a season since British-born Katherine Legge departed from her seat with the Audi Sport DTM squad and we've just got word that she's landed a new multi-year deal. Katherine had raced in IndyCar before so it may not be surprising that she'll be returning to the series now that...

    Out to Infineon for a shoot on a Ferrari, the guys at eGarage found themselves in a bit of a pinch. The Ferrari's motor blew and was a no-show, but another car they found in the paddock fit the bill. Seems the boys from Eurospec were there with their 1988 Audi 200 quattro Trans-Am. This car...

    We've got a few more nuggets for those following closely the Audi Sport test in Sebring this week. First, we're hearing a rumor from an often reliable source outside of Audi that there may be four R18s on the grid at Le Mans. This would include two R18 TDIs and two R18 hybrids (presumably hybrid...

    By this time, we doubt Audi Sport engineer Leena Gade needs any introduction. As the first female engineer to win Le Mans (this year with the R18 TDI's momentous win), she's earned her place in the motorsport lexicon and the spotlight turned its way in her direction. Audi of America has...

    The roster for the upcoming 2011 Race of Champions has grown today with the addition of 41-year old Heinz-Harald Frentzen.

    It's been brought to our attention that we may have been mistaken in our reporting of Martin Tomczyk landing over at BMW. The news was brought to our attention outside of Audi and when the Audi press release confirming Tomczyk's departure was announced we assumed it was confirmed. As of this...

Martin will be missed, though perhaps...

    On the morning ahead of last weekend's running of Petit Le Mans, Fast Lane Daily's JF Musial had a chance to sit down with Audi Sport engineer Leena Gade.
