Truth in 24 IIPosted: March 26, 2012
Back in 2008, Audi and NFL Films teamed up to follow Audi Motorsport as they traveled to Le Mans with their aging Audi R10 as they faced a new and daunting competitor: the Peugeot 908 FAP HDi.
What they produced was a brilliant racing documentary/movie.
The best part about the movie, it’s a free iTunes download. I watched it last year on the flight over to France. I was planning on watching it again in preparation for this year’s race, but something else caught my attention.
One of the guys on the Ten-Tenths site spotted this on the Audi Facebook page: http://www.truth-in-24.com/
Immediately, the boys started discussing. One post popped up from an insider – he had this report:
The film should be finalized over the next 8 weeks. Give us a few more weeks and we will come back to you with more information. It has been a LONG process to select the scenes to feature – there was just so much great racing going on. Not surprisingly after that epic race, it will be much more focused on the 24hrs itself when compared to the first edition.
Another post gave us a link to the trailer: http://www.audiusa.com/us/brand/AKQAStaging/exp/motorsport/truth_in_24.html
In other news, I’ve got the trip fully booked. Flight, hotel, and race. I have to book my train tickets from Paris to Tours and from Tours to Le Mans for Friday activities, but they don’t release the schedule this far out. 2 1/2 months to go.
