1st and 2nd place.
They can't be stopped.
Every actual race that they've done they've won.
(They lost a drag race to a Harrier jet. Does that really count?
)


not EVERY race.. the porsche RS Spyder has won overall this year too...

edit: it looks like they ran the R8 during that race for whatever reason, and one race the Porsche lost by .318 overall.... and did run faster lap

Come on, the R10 lost to the Harrier by a nose.

So they still won even with all the crap they had to do to make it a even playing field. PWNED

To be fair, the 3 and 4 cars were right behind, a few lengths.

The Lemans rules favored Audi. This was a bit arranged.

The concessions afforded diesel-powered cars at Le Mans this year are numerous. Compared with a turbocharged gasoline-fueled car, the diesels enjoy a 50-percent larger displacement limit, a 52-percent larger intake restrictor, and an absolute boost pressure limit nearly twice as high. Additionally, the diesels are allowed variable nozzle turbines in their turbochargers. It is also rumored that Audi successfully lobbied to raise the minimum weight to accommodate the R10's massive powerplant.

Audi is used to being a little overweight.

In a race series in which there are different powerplants, the ACO has to "guess" the apropriate restrictions. For example, if a team builds a very powerful and efficient 4 liter turbo V8 and the other team has a naturally aspirated 6 liter engine that is not as powerful and fuel efficient they could say that the ACO favors turbochargers. Also, the R10's nearest competition runs with 143 less pounds to even out the performances. Also, a Dyson set the fast lap in the race.
