Video: 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours Audi short film

By Johan Laubscher

Le Mans 24 Hours 2013 was another great race, witnessing the battle between the factory LMP1 heavyweights of Audi and Toyota. Ultimately Audi crossed the finish line victorious, taking their twelfth overall victory. The latest Audi Le Mans short film has gone online today.

Every year Audi produces an excellent short film featuring the race, which is revealed a few weeks after the event. The brand new video of the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours, titled "Le Mans 2013 - Motorsport is coming home", was revealed on the official Audi Deutschland YouTube channel this morning, and it is certainly another great video.

It is also touching to see that the video has been dedicated to Allan Simonsen, who tragically passed away in an early-race crash. The video closes with the words: "For Allan. A friend of Audi Sport."

Enjoy the video which has been embedded below (English version above, followed by the German version). The previous year’s short films can be seen HERE.
