2007 - 24 uur / hours Le Mans
2006 Zag de komst van de dieselmotor naar Le Mans. Het aangepaste reglement hielp wel een beetje, maar Audi kwam, zag en overwon als eerste fabrikant in de moderne geschiedenis op Le Mans met een diesel. In 2007 kreeg Audi gezelschap van Peugeot dat een jaar achter liep. Het verwachtte titanengevecht bleef uit, maar Peugeot weerde zich dapper. Het was trouwens hondeweer, waarbij de auto's de laatste uren achter de pacecar aan dreven.

2006 Saw Audi come to Le Mans with a diesel engine. The rules helped them but the rest they did themselves: winning at Le Mans with a diesel for the first time. In 2007 Peugeot joined them. The French were a year behind in development and the expected battle stayed out. But Peugeot did well and would be back next year. It was very bad weather this year, the cars floated behind the pace car for several hours.

2007 - American / European / Japanese Le Mans Series
De Europese Le Mans Series werd gedomineerd door de nieuwe diesel racers van Peugeot. Audi reed alleen in Amerika, waardoor de kemphanen elkaar alleen ontmoetten tijdens de 24-uurs race. In beide continenten leed de GT1 klasse helaas aan bloedarmoede.

The European Le Mans Series saw Peugeot dominating the season. The Audi's raced only in the USA, so bioth diesel engined cars only met during the 24-hour race. In both continents the GT1 class was not very well occupied.

2007 - 24 uur / hours Nürburgring
De 24 uurs race van de Nürburgring onderscheidt zich van andere etmaal races vanwege de enorme omvang en diversiteit van het deelnemersveld en natuurlijk de Groene Hel zelf.

The 24 hours race at the Nürburgring is different from other 24 hour races because of the enormous amount of contenders and its diversity and the Green Hell itself ofcourse.
