The once-in-a-lifetime experience
There’s only one way to watch one of the world’s most famous endurance races; trackside. That’s why, with a full boot and plenty of coffee, the 340PS Audi RS Q3 compact SUV made its way down smooth French toll roads to La Sarthe, ready to witness the epic Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race.
An Audi ski and luggage box and roof bag, along with the ample boot space of the RS Q3, meant this would be a camping trip with all the bells and whistles, and most importantly an Audi espresso mobile coffee maker, perfect for making sure no-one misses the action.
The tent is another Audi innovation; an inflatable frame replaces traditional poles, meaning all that’s needed is to simply unroll and inflate it with the air pump provided for truly laid-back camping. With the Beausejour campsite behind, and the entrance to the famous Porsche Curves ahead, this is the perfect trackside spot to witness the world’s fastest racing cars streak by.
No sooner than you sit down, two headlights appear in the distance, followed by even brighter ones, fast approaching. Within a matter of seconds, the No 8 Audi R18 e-tron quattro screams past, going around 190mph. Feeling the wind knock you back as you watch the rapidly receding tail-lights is an experience unlike any other, and one necessary for any motorsport fan. This year’s race may be over, but you can still re-live Audi’s most incredible moments right here.
