Audi R8 LMS vs Terramar

Back in 2012 Red Bull took Carlos Sainz, DTM driver Miguel Molina, and an Audi R8 LMS to the historic Autódromo de Sitges-Terramar in Spain to see if they could break the lap record that has stood unchallenged since 1923.

Audi Piloting 'Audi Sport' Branding in Australia

Mike Costello for CarAdvice:

The Audi Sport moniker has been set up to more clearly delineate Audi’s hardcore sports car (RS models and the R8) and racing activities from the rest of the brand — in essence, it’s the new forward-facing name for its quattro GmbH subsidiary (Audi’s version of AMG or BMW M).

Makes perfect sense for Audi to leverage more from their extensive motorsport activities by their factory WEC, GT, and DTM squads, as well as numerous customer teams and Audi Sport TT Cup program. As much as I liked the use of quattro GmbH as their ‘RS’ skunkworks, ‘quattro’ as a brand does have legacy motorsport and production car issues to overcome, had it been used as Audi’s equivalent ‘BMW M’ or ‘AMG’ division.

Audi wins dramatic Le Mans

Motorsport Magazine reports:

Audi scored its 13th victory in 15 attempts at the Le Mans 24 Hours, and Andre Lotterer, Benoit Treluyer and Marcel Fassler their third in four years, but only after one of the most dramatic races in the grand euduro’s long history.

What a race! The last few hours had us on the edge of our seats. Porsche #20 was looking like an outside chance with just two hours to go, until engine issues put paid to a fairy tale return to La Sarthe.

The impossible dream

Pistonheads ponder the question:

How do you advertise a performance car when the one thing you can’t advertise is performance?

Sadly this disease is also well entrenched in Australia, witness the recent sequence of recuts forced upon Nissan’s latest Pulsar SSS spot.
