Audi back on again for two more ALMS races



Audi had previously announced it was pulling out of the upcoming American Le Mans Season altogether save for the season-opening 12 Hours of Sebring later this month, but new reports say the German automaker has reconsidered and added the Petit Le Mans at Road America in September and the season finale race at Laguna Seca in October. This means the company's new diesel-powered Le Mans racer, the R15, will touch rubber to racing surface three times in the U.S. this year rather than just one. Audi will also race a pair of R15s in the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans in June, which gives the R15 four chances around the globe to fill the very large shoes of its predecessors, the R8 and R10, which have both largely dominated the LMP1 class in Le Mans racing since 2000.
One of the most amazing race cars that I've ever seen. This thing was super quiet, and just flat out hauled ass. I would suggest seeing it if it ends up going to the Petit Le Mans at RA this summer, well worth it.
