    R8 Returns To Le Mans

    Audi's all-conquering R8 sportscar will return to Le Mans next June. No official factory R8 will contest the 24-hour race but a number of private teams, including the highly successful Joest outfit that has campaigned in ALMS, hope to capture Audi's fourth consecutive Le Mans victory.

    Re: R8 Returns To Le Mans

    Yes, they announced this in June last year.

    After all, who wants to watch a foregone conclusion?

    Now that Porsche has got building the Cayenne out of the way, perhaps they'll make an appearance soon with BMW, Toyota, Nissan and VW (who were contemplating running a diesel vehicle which requires less refuelling so should be on the track longer!)

    Let's see!

    BTW - who else is going down there this year?

    Going to try and get it as a work freebie courtesy of MG, but I will have to wait and see

    I rather fancy it actually, but I wouldn't want to get stopped on the Autoroute, would I? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
    Seriously, If I am not doing my 'tour of europe' this year, then I am up for it.

    If you could secure camping in what used to Be Mason Blanc I would love to join a few!
    Perhaps an idea for a thread? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I'm going for definate, not sure if it will be a corporate freebie or not yet! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Going to take a couple of days to get down there, stopping getting lashed and generally having a ball, if people want to join me more than welcome

    I've added it to the calendar as well so it won't be forgotten!
