"ALMS president and CEO Scott Atherton said putting a successful race car out in front of potential customers is a smart move.

"That, trust me, will have a direct correlation to the showroom," he said.

Results



On 18 March 2006, the #2 Audi R10 won the 54th annual 12 Hours of Sebring after earning pole position by setting a qualifying record. The #1 car did not finish due to an overheating problem.

On 18 June 2006, the #8 Audi R10 placed first at the 2006 24 Hours of Le Mans, completing 380 laps, more than the R8 did, but less than others since 1967, see List of Le Mans 24h winners. The #7 Audi R10, which set fastest lap times in practice and race, came in third after suffering engine and turbo issues, completing 367 laps. At one point, the Joest team changed the #8 car's gearbox in under ten minutes, [7] compared to the hour and a half the fifth-place Pescarolo-Judd spent in the garage for similar repairs.

Well diesel race cars are nothing new, a cummins powered car ran the Indy 500 in 1930. It placed 13th.
