    Wonderful Audi LeMans Video

    I thought this was done very well, and it gives some stats and figures we don't hear so much..

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: Wonderful Audi LeMans Video

    Thank you.

    Sportscar racing is very underestimated compared to F1, partly because the F1 format is more suited to TV.

    ...and the darling of the FiA , and therefore 99% of the marketing efforts are directed at F1.

    Also - F1 is essentially a "driver's championship"  whereas sportscar racing is more about the cars. There are more people into drivers (nationality/personality/looks/lifestyle/etc) than there are true petrol heads, thus making F1 easier to market.


    Re: Wonderful Audi LeMans Video

    Yep, and Audi got it right when they said a single LeMans race is more valuable to them than an entire F1 season in terms of technical benefits and whatnot.

    Re: Wonderful Audi LeMans Video

    Yes, but it saddens me immensely that Porsche (Motorsport) seems to be paying the price for Audi's choice.


    Re: Wonderful Audi LeMans Video

    I wish Porsche were in LeMans too, but now this will prove difficult. I appreciate Audi doing the Diesel tech though.

    Re: Wonderful Audi LeMans Video

    Very few manufacturers have been in LM racing at the prototype class for so long as Audi. The rest have tried their hand for a while and they stopped after winning once  or they gave up.

    Ultimately, Audi will abandon LM too and perhaps Porsche will be handed the baton by VW Group.

    Also it would a good idea for Porsche to enter F1 but only as an engine manufacturer. If you win you get the credit, if you lose it's the team to blame.

    I will have to disagree on that. It's down to manufacturers and more specifically down to Ferrari. If Ferrari were to leave F1, the championship would be all but over. Smiley

    FERRARI RULES!!!

    Re: Wonderful Audi LeMans Video

     Then we will just have to disagree. Ferrari is the only exception (for a variety of reasons that we can get into if necessary),
