Establishing themselves as the benchmark in endurance racing technology and strategy, Audi has proven once again they know what they are doing. The company has secured another Manufactures WEC title after finishing second and third at the Shanghai 6 hours this past weekend.

Audi was also able to establish their hybrid e-tron R18 racecar as a force to be reckoned¬. Even after its win at the Le Mans 24 Hours and nipping at the heels of Toyota all season long. Even out shining Toyota and all their “proven” technology driven by a majority of former Peugeot drivers.

While Audi Celebrated their Manufactures Championship, drivers Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer would take home the overall drivers championship after finishing third in Shanghai. Second place drivers championship would also go to an Audi team. Tom Kristensen and Alan McNish would stand aside their “young guns” to continue the Four Ring domination of the podium that’s been so prevalent all season long.
