This is heading to 2013 Le Mans in the LMP2 category! I’m so excited my Alpine neurons are spazzing out.
Audi celebrates another victory at this weekend’s 24 Hours At the Nurburgring with a 1-2 finish for the Audi R8 LMS ultra! Superb.

Great picture at the finishing line by Frozenspeed!

Here’s a link i know is working if you do not have access to SPEED in the USA.
BTW, you can also stream the broadcast from SPEED when they are not live on TV, like right now—–so from 11:30am to 3:30 PM US Eastern Standard time and 8pm to 11pm US Eastern Standard time. I am not posting a direct link here to protect the Justin.tv feed—–but to go Speedtv.com and follow the Le Mans info there.
McNish is one of my favourite endurance drivers—-and a great driver. Le Mans is coming on June 11th!
BMW hasn’t raced in Le Mans for over 11 years, since they ran the V10 Prototype in 1999. As the cars on the lineup for the 2010 Le Mans were revealed, it appears 2 BMW E92 M3s are registered in the GT2 class!
Seeing as BMW has pulled out of Formula One, it appears they are redistributing some of their racing technology, staff, and resources into various ‘other’ forms of motorsports. Should be interesting to see how they do in the competitive GT2 class against C6 Corvettes, Porsches, and Ferraris.
Thanks to Jalopnik for the tip!
