Audi does Petit Le Mans - Click above to watch the video after the jump

Over the past weekend, while the Joest Racing crew was working away preparing the two Audi R15 TDIs for the extra-Petit Le Mans, reserve driver Mike Rockenfeller and a camera crew were out and about shooting a series of videos. Audi has now posted more than two dozen videos on its YouTube page that include driver and crew interviews, tours of the garage, pits and a tour of Road Atlanta. There's plenty of up-close action as everyone gets ready for what proved to be a rain shortened race.

During the track tour, Rockenfeller (a.k.a. Rocky) describes some of the physical attributes required to get through certain corners at maximum speed. For those unfamiliar with Road Atlanta – or what goes on behind the scenes with a team like Audi – it's worth checking out the vid posted after the jump.

      Guys were slow on this one. I was able to view all these via Facebook as they uploaded them. That and how come hardly any Petit Leman news was posted up till days after it happened?

      Anyways I love how Audi is using FB and such to post up info and video's like this. I hope they keep it up in the future.

        I hear you Clavius. I thought it was funny the news was coming days late on this site as well. Still baffled on why people have any remote attraction to the circus called F1. I'll take sports car racing all day every day. F1 = Lindsay Lohan.
