    The eagle-eyed Audi motorsport fans over at the Audi Motorsport Bog must have been checking daily, because they were first to break the story that the Truth in 24 II website is now live and feature laden. Linked below, the site includes a trailer for the movie as well as a regular flow of...

    Though news of this broke last week, we wanted to pass our readers a reminder that the February Download Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 is available as of today. This is great news for Audi motorsport enthusiasts since the pack includes the #2 "Red Sonja" Audi R18 TDI that won the 2011 24 Hours of...

    Fire up the Xbox. If you're anything like us you've been saving up your Forza 4 gaming credits for this day. Details for the February Download Pack have just been posted by Forza on Facebook. Here's the Rundown. We plan to download the R18 and S1 right away and will add them for sharing to our...

    Congratulations are in order for our friend Eric Gilbert from Motorsport.com who's won the The Sarthe Endurance Photo competition with this beautiful shot of two Audi R18s slicing through the quiet French countryside during pre-race practice last June. Eric headed out to a spot between Mulsanne...

    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...

    When it comes to driving cool Audis, I can't complain (words by George Achorn). As editor of Fourtitude I've had the chance to sample cars like the R8 GT , the R8 V12 TDI Le Mans Concept , the Audi quattro Concept and even an early A5 drivetrain mule of the latter dubbed "The Beast" . It's rare...

    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. Gade herself has enjoyed a fair degree of notoriety since her winning the 24 Hours in June as the first female lead engineer to do so. Since...

    If you're looking for some background of how the Audi Sport drivers look back on Imola and the disappointing loss to Peugeot, then look no further than AllanMcNish.com. McNish submits podcasts regularly, previewing and recounting races throughout the season. The Scottish driver's most recent...

    Having just won Le Mans, we were surprised no shots of Audi R18 chief engineer Leena Gade had filtered through from Imola. Then, we caught this story from the Telegraph and all was clear. Seems Leena attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend and managed to catch up with sister Teena...

    Having just recently become the first woman to win Le Mans as lead engineer of a racing team, Leena Gade has solidly placed herself on the radar of more than just Audi enthusiasts. Being an engineer at a team like Audi doesn't hurt either, where her colleagues like Howden Haynes and Brad Kettler...

    Just like the character in the movie that bears his nickname, Mike Rockenfeller (a.k.a. Rocky) has figuratively gotten back up and dusted himself off following a truly terrifying wreck in Le Mans. Depicted in the video below, the accident that saw his #1 Audi R18 TDI demolished seemed the stuff...

    We'll admit, we've been jammed trying to get our Le Mans content up. A cracking race left us quite on the run in France and now we're on the west coast to drive R8s through the end of the week. It's no complaint about the entertainment value of our week but it's leaving us quite behind in...

    As you might imagine, the Audi presence at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is so gargantuan and target rich that you could spend a few days looking at things that have nothing to do with racecars on track. We've uploaded a gallery of "Miscellaneous" shots that include other portions of the Audi presence...

    We're on a crazy schedule here in Le Mans and will be publishing most of our photos and video interviews following our chance to catch our breath. However, we just attended a press conference with Allan where he spoke about his horrible accident that demolished the #3 Audi R18 TDI in the first...

    For the fans, the highlight of Tuesday during Le Mans week has to be the autograph sessions. No doubt a tradition taken from the ALMS, early arrivals to race week have the opportunity to meet their favorite drivers such as Allan McNish (above) and grab a quick autograph. Also during the...

    2011 marks Fourtitude's sixth 24 Hours of Le Mans. And while La Sarthe continues to offer up surprises like last year's 1-2-3 Audi win, scrutineering usually isn't often at the top of the list of Le Mans' most unexpected moments. This year though, we're just two days in to race week and it's...

    We've just uploaded our scrutineering day two photo gallery with several hundred shots. Day 2 marked visits to the Le Mans city center by both Audi Sport and their chief rival Peugeot Sport for technical inspection. We witnessed plenty and will file a summary report shortly but wanted to let you...

    With Audi Sport representing the only Audi or Audi-powered cars on the grid this year and also a Monday scrutineering slot, Sunday at scrutineering wasn't terribly momentous for Audi fans watching Le Mans week make its anticipated beginning. Rain showers plagued this first day of car inspection...
