The Audi R15 TDI has attracted great interest with thousands of fans turning out for the technical scrutineering at Le Mans.
Audi Sport Team Joest has successfully taken the first formal hurdle at the 78th edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours: all three Audi R15 TDI cars passed the Technical Scrutineering at the Place des Jacobins in the center of the Western French city in front of thousands of spectators without any problems.
“It’s great that so many fans turned out for the Technical Scrutineering on a normal workday,” said Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich. “This shows the enormous enthusiasm for the race at Le Mans.”
Audi has been contesting the Le Mans 24 Hours since 1999 and uses the world’s most important endurance race to test technological innovations. With a track record of eight victories, the brand with the four rings is the most successful automobile manufacturer in recent Le Mans history.
