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.
