A diesel doesn’t belong in a motorsport competition! A mith that was broken down by When Frankie Biela when crossing the finish line with Audi R10 prototype and Audi Sport Team Joest (ASTJ) became the first team in the world that won an endurance race (LeMans) with a car that was equipped with a disel engine.

The Audi R10 TDI made its first secret test almost 200 days ago so we might say that this succes is a real surprise. After a long series of tests, including a winning streak in the 12 hour race at Sebring, the concept car mannaged to continue the succes of his predecesor R8.

The way in witch Audi dominated the race that took place at Le Sarthe will remain as a reference point to futre upcommers, eventhough many were scheptical about the car’s chances of succes.

More about this succes you can find out on the forums.
