TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.
