Video: When the legend raced on New Year’s Eve

By Johan Laubscher

As we head into the final hours of 2012 it has been another great year for Audi in the world of Motorsport. Multiple successes stretching to all the corners of the globe. Fittingly we have included the embedded video from one of Audi's most notable New Year’s Eve successes which was uploaded onto YouTube a few years ago. At the end of 2000 the ALMS held its final round at Adelaide in Australia. It was the event where the now legendary Audi R8 in the “Crocodile livery” competed. It was a great race and was perfectly titled as the “Race of a Thousand Years.”

Enjoy watching this race which took place on New Year’s Eve twelve years ago.

We wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year for 2013.
