The 24 hours of Le Mans
is arguably the toughest, most famous race in the world. Audi
has dominated the annual event since 2006 with its revolutionary, diesel
powered R10. Truth in 24
(Autoblog review here
) is the story of the 2008 race as seen from the pits of team Audi. The four-ringed automaker commissioned the visual masters at NFL Films to produce the documentary, and the resulting film is a must-see for anyone even remotely interested in racing.
ESPN is airing the brilliant documentary on Friday, March 20 as a kickoff to the ALMS season. The Friday airing of Truth in 24
is the perfect precursor to the world racing debut of Audi's new R15 at the 12 Hours of Sebring
the next day. This documentary has fast become one of the best racing films of all time, and it's definitely worth your time. Thanks for the tip, Horst!
