On June 17th Audi will field two R10s in the epic 24 Hours of Le Mans. Each car will have its own team of three drivers. All six drivers for Audi have won the 24 Hours of Le Mans at least once, with the group having collected 17 Le Mans trophies collectively.

The first team consists of Frank Biela, Emanuele Pirro and Marco Werner, and the second Dindo Capello, Allan McNish and Le Mans record winner Tom Kristensen.

Both the teams and the R10s will get a dress rehearsal before Le Mans when they compete in March at the 12 Hours of  Sebring in Florida that kicks off the 2006 American Le Mans Series. At that time we'll finally get to see what these diesels can do.
