Good news, Le Mans fans. Audi has released its "Truth in 24 II: Every Second Counts" documentary as a free download on iTunes. As with the first film, this sequel is narrated by none other than Jason Statham and details the Audi battle for its tenth win at the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans. As you may recall, the race was a nail-biter for the race team. After seeing its sister entries removed from competition, the #2 R18 TDI went on to take the checkered flag by fighting off three rival Peugeot entries.

But the story was about more than the drivers and the cars. Team engineer Leena Gade officially became the first female in history to lead a Le Mans team to an overall victory.

Audi also made another documentary about the U.S. Ski Team called "Truth in Motion," and all three films are available for free on iTunes. Check out the full press release below for more information.

From the film's U.S. Premiere in Los Angeles to its nationwide May 5 television debut on SPEED TV, "Truth in 24 II: Every Second Counts," the highly anticipated sequel to "Truth in 24," has allowed fans a glimpse into the Audi world of racing as it documented the brand's exciting win at the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France.

Now, in response to the film's successful television debut, "Truth in 24 II: Every Second Counts," will be exclusively available for free download on the iTunes Store (www.iTunes.com/truthin24ii) beginning May 22 in the U.S., United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. The free download on iTunes also means fans will be able to enjoy the film on any Mac or PC, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or on your HDTV with Apple TV. The first installment of the film, "Truth in 24," is also available in stunning high-definition on iTunes at www.iTunes.com/truthin24 as a free download.

"Truth in 24 II: Every Second Counts," narrated by Jason Statham, documents the Audi Sport Team Joest as they attempt to seek Audi's tenth victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2011. When tragedy struck twice, the lone Audi R18 TDI® #2 race car remained to fight three Peugeots. Risks were taken, boundaries were pushed and nerves were rattled. "Truth in 24 II: Every Second Counts" highlights Audi's win and documents what unfolded over the next 24 Hours at Le Mans as it became one of the most competitive and gripping races the world had ever seen.

Written and directed by Rob Gehring, produced and edited by Charlie Askew, Rob Gehring, Dave Neupauer, Brian Rosenfield and Scott Thor and Executive Produced by Charles N. Besser, Howard Katz and Steve Sabol, the film follows the gripping suspense as team engineer Leena Gade, drivers André Lotterer, Benoît Tréluyer and Marcel Fässler worked to gain Audi's tenth Le Mans victory. The tenth win also made history as Gade, who was forced to make many difficult split second decisions, was named the first female race engineer ever to orchestrate a winner at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

"Truth in 24 II" Every Second Counts is the third installment of the series. Audi released its first documentary, "Truth in 24" at AFI FEST in 2008, which was also narrated by Jason Statham and chronicled the Audi R10 team and their quest for a third straight outright win of the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans. In 2010, "Truth in Motion" followed the U.S. Ski Team's road to Vancouver chronicling the road to becoming a world-class skier. The day-to-day triumphs and tribulations are documented in an up close and personal way rarely seen by the consumer. All three films, "Truth in 24," "Truth in Motion" and "Truth in 24 II: Every Second Counts" are available for free on iTunes.

      Thanks for the non-iTunes link. That was a dealbreaker for me, too.

      As a Corvette fan I loved last year's le mans with the onboard camera streaming on the internet, and seeing the one remaining Audi fight off the Peugeots was exciting. I don't use itunes though. Is there anywhere else to get this?

      Hopefully it's up on the torrent sites soon. Don't have iTunes and I'm not going to give them my credit card information just to download a single free video. Especially not if I can't download it anyway being in Canada.

        The first one wasn't available in Canada either - so I assume this one will never be.

          The first one is indeed available in Canada via iTunes. AFAIK it came out delayed after the US release, but we did get it.....
