Audi R10: Diesel "war" is about to begin with Peugeot

Audi R10
We found an interesting article saying that a diesel "war" between Audi and Peugeot and their diesel racecars such as the Audi R10 is about to begin. The Peugeot is welcomed to bring some competition but it has yet to prove that it can beat the Audi R10. Last meeting was decided in favor for the Audi and we think it will stay that way.
Although both factory teams are racing similar turbodiesel-powered prototypes, to date they have only clashed once. That was at the Le Mans 24 Hours in June, where the Germans came out on top.

Audi has been contesting the American Le Mans Series while, on its return to top-level sportscar racing, Peugeot has taken victory in all six rounds of the predominantly European-based Le Mans Series.

Neither outfit has confirmed its future intentions, but both are likely to lock horns in Florida, US, at the 12 Hours of Sebring in the spring, as well as at Le Mans next summer. And now, with 12 months of experience under its belt, Peugeot is sure to provide an even stiffer challenge to all-conquering Audi.
