• Porsche returning to Le Mans with LMP-1 car to challenge for overall victory - How will it affect Audi?

      You might be saying, how is Porsche returning? Weren't they just running in Le Mans? Yes, but not in the LMP classes which challenge for the overall victory. You might remember that Audi recently won LeMans which was their 10th victory since 2000. Audi has been dominant and treats LeMans as if it is even greater than Formula 1. What did Porsche have to say about Audi as its competition?

      Whoa, that is some attitude and confidence! Porsche is the all time leader in overall LeMans victories with 16 vs. Audi's 10. It is going to be interesting to see the VW group sibling rivalry.
