By Johan Laubscher

Audi Sport has had a tremendous year in endurance racing with a Triple Crown stretching all the way from France, Germany and Belgium. A beautiful set of photos was released today featuring this achievement.

Audi Sport Team Joest won the Le Mans 24 Hours in June with the #2 Audi R18 e-tron quattro piloted by Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Treluyer.

Later in June it was the turn of Phoenix Racing to win the Nürburgring 24 Hours with their #4 Audi R8 LMS ultra, which was driven by Christopher Haase, Christian Mamerow, René Rast and Markus Winkelhock.

July saw a third 24 Hour race victory for the Four Rings, as Belgian Audi Club Team WRT took the honours at the Spa 24 Hours. The race winning #1 Audi R8 LMS ultra was driven by Laurens Vanthoor, Markus Winkelhock and Rene Rast.

Audi Communications - Motorsport (PR) released seven stunning photos earlier today. These photos feature the three 24 Hour race winning cars from 2014.
