As we reported barely a month ago, Audi's victory at this year's 24 hours of Le Mans was one of the most thrilling, frightening and hardest-fought conquests in the 89-year history of the French endurance classic. To commemorate that feat, the automaker has just released this short documentary that does a superb job of capturing the excitement of literally a day at the races when the new Audi R18 TDI driven by Marcel Fässler/André Lotterer/Benoît Tréluyer took the measure of an equally brilliant Peugeot 908 TDI piloted by Sebastien Bourdais/Simon Pagenaud/Pedro Lamy by a mere 13.854 seconds after 2,998 miles of lead-swapping, wheel-to-wheel competition. Even non-racing fans will find this retelling time well spent.
