Audi remains unbeaten in LM P1 class

ALMS: In round nine of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS), the Audi R10 TDI remains unbeaten: Allan McNish (Scotland) and Dindo Capello (Italy) scored an LM P1 category victory ahead of their team mates Marco Werner (Germany) and Emanuele Pirro (Italy) at Mosport (Canada). During almost the entire race, the Audi R10 TDI led outright in front of the lighter LM P2 sports cars. But at the end of the race due to a technical problem, Allan McNish lost the overall victory to Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas (Porsche). With the positions one and two in the LM P1 category, Audi Sport North America clinched the LM P1 Team Championship with three races remaining.

Audi 1-2 victory at the Nürburgring

Superstars: Audi driver Gianni Morbidelli took the lead in the Superstars Series with his third consecutive victory. The former Formula 1 driver dominated the only "away" race of the Italian Touring Car Series at the Nürburgring. His team mate Giorgio Sanna completed a 1-2 victory for the Audi RS 4. Stevo Goldstein dropped to eleventh position following a collision with former Championship leader Massimo Pigoli (Jaguar).
