Audi maintains chance for title in Le Mans Series
LMS: Audi youngsters Alexandre Premat (26) and Mike Rockenfeller (25) again clinched a podium result at the fourth round of the European-based Le Mans Series. With third place at the 1000-kilometre race at the Nurburgring, they maintained their chance in the fight for the title. Dindo Capello and Allan McNish in the second Audi R10 TDI finished in fourth place. Before the finale at Silverstone (Great Britain) on 14 September, Premat and Rockenfeller are ranking only two points behind Championship leaders Marc Gene and Nicolas Minassian in the LM P1 class standings. In the Manufacturers' classification, Audi has a six-point gap to title defender Peugeot.
