Ingolstadt/Le Mans (ots)
On 17 and 18 June, Audi will be reporting live and in detail on
the Le Mans 24 Hour race at http://www.audi.com/motorsport
Audi is already on the spot with its own web reporter who is
keeping fans around the world informed of preparations in the race
week. A news ticker will keep visitors to the Audi site up to date
with the latest developments on the track during qualifying and the
actual race. Fascinating photos from Le Mans will be posted on the
website every day. By clicking on the box marked "Follow me" Audi
fans can pick "their" R8 and follow this car closely throughout the
week. Comments made by the drivers can be called up in Real Audio
format. Highlights will be available as Real Videos after the race.
Anyone with a WAP mobile can also follow the race of the year on
his mobile phone. The latest results and news about the teams and the
three R8 cars will be available at http://wap.audi.de
even during the
qualifying sessions. This service will then also be offered for the
remaining races in the American Le Mans Series.
One special highlight in Audi's Internet service will be a
permanent chat during the race which the Audi drivers will also log
on to from time to time.
The 68th Le Mans 24 Hour race will start on 17 June at 4 p.m.
Following the manufacturer's successful debut last year, when it
finished third and fourth at its first attempt, Audi is entering
three open Audi R8 cars in the race. A total of nine drivers will be
competing for Audi.
