Audi is set for 24 Hours of Le Mans

Le Mans: All set for the "race of the year": covering a total of almost 2,600 kilometres on the only official test day, the Audi drivers prepared themselves for the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans to be staged on 14 and 15 June. The Audi R10 TDI vehicles completed the eight-hour test without the slightest technical problem. While Alexandre Premat had set the fastest time at Le Mans in the morning, Marco Werner, as the quickest Audi driver, was clocked at 3m 26.678s in the afternoon, in third place overall.
