    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...

    How's that for menacing? Allan McNish at the wheel of @AudiR18_2. We believe the car looks meanest when viewed from the height of a Sebring gator, traveling at a rapid pace and with heat swirls flying off its jet wash. Had competitors seen that in their rearviews they likely got the heck out of...

    Somewhere on the way to the track, past the guy with the pot leaf camo Ramcharger and the fried bubble gum vendor (no really) you might just catch a heat of some vintage racing. This is Sebring after all, where world class (Audi R8 LMP1 x 3) meets low class (Ford Pinto... no offense to the...

    Part of every Audi Motorsport Experience hospitality program is always the gratuitous parade lap of the course. In this case, a large number of Audi owners had a chance to do a lap of the fabled Sebring track. Fourtitude contributors Bill Cho and Tim Enders took our Sebring rides (Audi R8 and A7...

    First an apology for the lack of coverage of Sebring thus far. Our main laptop for production died while in Sebring for the 12 Hours and we were left a bit out of the race ourselves as a result. Laptop now working and data luckily secure, we're getting caught up just as quickly as possible...

    Audi Sport this morning has begun practice for this year's 12 Hours of Sebring with the 2012 spec R18 TDI out on track. As we're back at the office prepping for our Wednesday departure to Florida, the Audi Sport crew is busy logging miles in preparation for this weekend's big race. As a result...

    Techhouse & Speed Radio has published audio from a phone interview with Allan McNish where many topics are covered. If you're looking for insight into Allan, his life in Monaco, running the Daytona 24 Hours, the run up to Sebring and Peugeot's pullout then look no further. Allan was candid about...

    To say Peugeot's exit from Le Mans and the WEC was abrupt is an understatement. As mentioned in the report surrounding the Lion's departure published yesterday, the move came so out of the blue that even Peugeot Sport may not have known as the team had planned a test of the new 908 HYbrid4...

    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...

    The Monday following the 12 Hours of Sebring, Audi Sport pulled off the covers of two R18s under the Florida sun and set about testing for Le Mans. We embedded with Audi that day and filed our own report following the test and were also joined that day by ace photographer Jim Fets and ace...

    Since last week when we attended the R18 test at Sebring Raceway following the running of the 12 Hours, we've been doing our best to push out as much content as possible. While we're not quite done (expect a written report and more photos), we've now uploaded a 500 pic photo gallery , some...

    While on the ground at the 12 Hours of Sebring I managed to attend an autograph session at the Audi Turn 1 Club where Audi fans got a chance to meet all of the Audi drivers and get posters, model cars or extremities signed by Audi's six R15 pilots. The event was hosted by John Hindhaugh of Radio...

    Last week we posted an initial link to a 500+ photo gallery shot during Audi Sport's recent R18 test in Sebring. Fourtitude was on hand along with a very few other UK and French journalists to witness the test and get capture the car as much as we could via photography and video. We were like...

On hand at the interview was Guerilla Video shooting for Audi of America who's shared their footage with...

Expect more coverage and...
