Audi R10 TDI wins ALMS finale
ALMS: In the finale of the American Le Mans Series at Laguna Seca (US state of California), Team Audi Sport North America has once again given impressive proof of the performance of Audi TDI Power. With the Diesel technology which is set to enter the US market for road cars in 2008, Dindo Capello (Italy) and Allan McNish (Scotland) were able to beat the best Porsche in a photo finish. Mike Rockenfeller (Germany) and Marco Werner (Germany) completed Audi's triumph in the final race of the season with a third place finish.

The former Formula 1 driver started from pole position and had to hold off the Jaguar of Alessandro Balzan only on the opening laps before pulling away from the field. Team-mate Giorgio Sanna finished fourth clinching the third place in the Championship. Morbidelli had already prematurely secured the title.
