Audi takes class win at Sebring

ALMS: The Audi R10 TDI remains unbeaten after 22 races. In a turbulent 12-hour race at Sebring (US state of Florida), Audi achieved a 1-2 victory in the LM P1 category with their diesel-powered sports cars. Following eight Sebring victories in a row, however, Audi had to be content with class glory in the American endurance classic for the first time. In the overall classification, the two R10 TDI prototypes finished third and sixth.

Audi in "Hall of Fame" at Sebring

ALMS: Since last Friday, Audi has a place in the "Hall of Fame" of Sebring. The famous US racetrack honoured the series of Audi victories in the 12-hour classic. Also inducted into the "Hall of Fame" was former Audi factory driver Hans-Joachim Stuck, who since the beginning of this year, is a motorsport consultant for the Volkswagen Group and a three-time winner of the Sebring 12 Hours.
