Audi welcomes Porsche back to the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a couple of donuts outside its rival’s headquarters in the hybrid Audi R18 e-tron Quattro. Simply awesome!
Just another day in the office for Rinaldo ‘Dindo’ Capello and the hybrid Audi R18 e-tron quattro.
Ahead of the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans – and with Audi gunning for its 13th victory in 15 years at La Sarthe – Audi will be facing strong competition from LMP1 rivals Toyota and Porsche for overall victory, especially given the former’s timesheet topping performance on test day.
So, how is Audi preparing for the legendary endurance event? What warning shots is Ingolstadt firing across its rivals bows and how is the second most successful manufacturer in Le Mans history welcoming its sister brand back to competition? Well, a couple of tyre-squealing donuts outside Porsche HQ of course.
You’ve just got to love Le Mans!
