After the win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the title win in the American Le Mans Series, Audi performed another feat with its R10 TDI diesel sportscar.

At the 1000km (621 miles) race at Silverstone in Great Britain, Audi Sport Team Joest secured the champion's title in the European Le Mans Series (LMS).

In front of a record turnout of 53,000 spectators, Dindo Capello (Italy) and Allan McNish (Scotland) at the season's finale scored the first victory of the Audi R10 TDI, which is powered by over 650hp. For Alexandre Prmat (France) and Mike Rockenfeller (Germany), a fourth place at Silverstone was sufficient to win the drivers' title in the LM P1 class. The LMS manufacturers' and team titles went to Audi as well.
