Driving the AUDI R8 V10 Spyder around Le Mans 2012



Hey Guys

As I already posted here (AUDI R8 Spyder around Le Mans) I had the chance to drive a Audi R8 V10 Spyder for some hours around Le Mans. Here's now f-i-n-a-l-l-y the Video!

I'm not sure about the Quality ... I think the Windows Movie Maker "destroyed" the Full HD GoPro Quality. :(

    Savage Rivale


    Hey Guys

    Wow wow wow, when you want to see a few million euros/dollars/pounds in a row, then keep on watching the Cars in this Post. If not, keep on watching, too!

    At the "Drivers Parade" in Le Mans I've now finally seen a Bugatti Veyron in real life on a real street, for the first time. Also the ones like the Gumpert Apollo, Savage Rivale, Exagon Furtive eGT or the Protoscar Lampo were new for me to see outside Fair Halls.

    LE MANS with a Helicopter in 10 Minutes



    Hey Guys
    When you're at Le Mans for the first time, and just hanging around in the area between the Paddock and the Ferris Wheel you don't have (no, you really don't have) a clue of the real dimensions of the Track. 13,5 km sound smaller than they actually are!

    So I did a 10 Minutes Helicopter Flight and we flew 1,5 times around the Track. If you're interested in one of those flights for the next time, you can exit the area right behind the starting-grid on the side of the Airport (there's a small brown house where they scan your tickets, so you can exit). I can really recommend this experience to everyone! ;-)

    The 24th HOUR IN LE MANS 2012 - FINISH

    Champagne Showers after the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2012, Audi on #1, #2, #3


    Hey Guys
    When the 4 AUDI passed the finish line of the 80th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans the atmosphere was so unique all around. People that haven't even knew each other were celebrating together, cheering, clapping their hands and applauding loud.

    Audi won the 24 Heures du Mans and for the very very first time a Hybrid/Diesel Car won a Motorsports Race, and then the "hardest in the world".

    The Partying mood of the Spectators couldn't be stopped by walls, everyone was now storming the track to be as close as possible at the ceremony.

    Later, when I also went downstaris, I picked up one of those gold-glitter-things. One of the best souvenirs you can get, don't you agree?

    24 Heures du Mans at Midnight



    Hey Guys
    When everything is dark, silent and slowed down (or already sleeping) the Sound of the passing Cars is even more Impressive!
    I've taken the Pictures with my 50 mm 1,8 Lens down from the Skylounge and the Racing Arena during 12 pm and about 3 am on Saturday/Sunday.

    LE MANS 2012 PADDOCK and PIT LANE

    Hey Guys
    The Places where all the "Background Magic" happens are definitely around the Pit Lane and the Paddock Area. Where the whole Team (Audi has 200 People for 4 Cars, two different ones) works so perfectly together that they could place all their Cars in the Top 10. Congratulations for that, but tomorrow we'll see if a Pole Position really means that you have to win...

    TEST DRIVE: AUDI A3 2012



    Hey Guys

    On Friday there came so many memories back for me when I drove the new 2012's AUDI A3, thanks to Audi Germany.
    More than two years ago, when I had the first drive with my driving school's A3 8P I was definitely more frightened and excited, but the now new 8V wasn't that bad either ... my Driver/Co-Driver Jan (auto-geil.de) and I have done most of our kilometers with  the 1.8 TFSI quattro with the equipment package "Ambition" around inviting roads next to the curvy coast of Mallorca in Spain.

    AUDI A3 Videos by german Autoblogger



    Hey Guys

    Here now two Videos which were created while our time with the Audi A3 on Friday.

    The First one is by by Driver/Co-Driver Jan of auto-geil.com, the second Video is by Björn of mein-auto-blog.de.

    Sorry, both are in German. But Pictures can say more than a thousand words! ;-)
