2006 - 24 uur / hours Le Mans
2006 Zag de komst van de dieselmotor naar Le Mans. En dan niet een amateuristische poging zoals enkele jaren eerder, maar een serieuze auto ontworpen door Audi. Het aangepaste reglement hielp wel een beetje, maar Audi kwam, zag en overwon als eerste fabrikant op Le Mans in de moderne geschiedenis met een diesel.

2006 Saw Audi come to Le Mans with a diesel engine. The slightly changed rules helped them but the rest they did themselves: winning at Le Mans with a diesel for the first time.

2006 - American, European & Japanese Le Mans Series
De Audi's namen geen deel aan de Europese Le Mans Series. Alle vijf de races werden gewonnen door het team van Henri Pescarolo. De GT's speelden een ondergeschikte rol. In de USA waren de Audi's de sterkste, maar werden op de hielen gezeten door de LMP2 Porsches.

The Audi's did not compete in the European Le Mans Series. All five races were won by the team of Henri Pescarolo. GT's played no significant role. In the USA, Audi was dominant but closely followed by the LMP2 Porsches.
