2009 - Podiums-Serie fortgesetzt

2009 - Series of podium finishes continued

In one of the most exciting and fastest races in Le Mans history on 13/14 June 2009 Audi Sport Team Joest clinched third place and in doing so continued a series of podium finishes under the sign of the Four Rings. Before, the new Audi R15 TDI won on its race debut at Sebring (USA) in March. At “Petit Le Mans” at Road Atlanta (USA), the last race of the season, the diesel sportscar fielded by Joest led for almost the entire distance, however, the race being aborted at an inopportune moment due to heavy rain cost a possible victory. Instead Audi Sport Team Joest had to settle for third and fourth positions after a faultless performance.
