After recovering from a challenging 2012 Grand-Am debut, Audi returned to the Rolex24 with their eyes on the podium. Even though the scales were slightly in favor of other cars competing in the GT Class (Audi's R8s weighing 110 lb more than their competitors and were told to run a 43mm restrictor) the mighty Audis were able to win. With minutes on the clock some even thought they could sweep the podium! Check out the video from Audi highlighting the entire exhilarating race.
