Video: The Audi R8 legends are not dead!

By Johan Laubscher

The Audi R8 was a revolutionary force in the world of sportscar racing. The car dominated the sport from 2000 until its eventual retirement in 2006. Many of these old cars have now begun racing in the various American Historic Racing series/events. Rogers Motorsport is one of the teams at the forefront with the Audi R8s that race in the historic events. The team has two Audi R8 cars, chassis #405 and #607. These cars will always be remembered as legends and the onboard videos bellow clearly show that these “old girls” still have a lot of speed in them. Below are four onboard videos from the two Rogers Motorsports cars. Two onboard videos inside Audi R8 #607 at Mid Ohio and Watkins Glen and two videos of Audi R8 #405 at Road America, enjoy:
