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.

FW190 found in forest clearing - Outside of Leningrad
Information from researchers involved with the restoration confirms that
the pilot of the Fw190, Paul Rätz, was a POW and repatriated to Germany in
1949. He passed away in 1989 and his son aided in the research for the
Paul Rätz was a ground crew member before becoming a pilot with 1./JG54 in
1942 and 1943. He had several air victories and survived three crash
landings. He was best known as a ground attack pilot and transferred to to
4./JG54 on July 9, 1943. Ten days later on July 19 he crashed with this
plane during a mission to attack a train.
"Fw190 A5 White A of 4./JG54
This Focke-wulf 190 was manufactured in April 1943, originally as an A-5
variant and supplied with the full work number 0151227 by the parent
factory of Focke-Wulf Flugzeugbau GmbH at Bremen.
THE LOSS OF FW190 A5 W.Nr 1227.
On Monday 19th July 1943 Fw190 A-5 W.Nr 1227 'White A' went on a mission
carrying a SC250 (550Ib) bomb. Taking off from Siwerskaja, on what was
probably a hot summer day, 'White A' headed for the Front line which was
only fifteen or so minutes flight time away. Crossing the front line over
the Dvina River, the Fw190, flying with another crossed it and headed East.
Whilst behind enemy lines, in an area called Voibakala, the 'Rotte'
attacked an armoured train and reportedly suffered damage from flak. The
loss report indicates the Fw190 crash landed due to this damage, although
none was located on the airframe. It Fw190 suffered a catastrophic failure
of the BMW801, caused by a rag -sabotage is suspected as it was a new
engine was fitted a few days before. The Fw190 was recorded as being 100%
lost in the map reference co-ordinates of Pl.Qu.20124. This grid system
based on 1:200,000 maps was used to identify crash sites, possibly for
salvage, recovery of missing pilots or as the best way of identifying an
area consisting of unpronounceable Russian towns, villages and large areas
of forests and lakes. The more numbers the Pl.Qu. reference gives, the
smaller the area of the location. A key to this 'code', would help identify
literally dozens of possible recoveries within Russia!!
The pilot Feldwebel Paul Rätz survived the crash landed behind enemy
lines. He removed his leather flying helmet and retrieved the first air kit
from the rear fuselage and is thought to have headed West back to the front
line only a dozen or so miles from the crash site. He was undoubtedly
captured by the Russians and interned although the Luftwaffe loss report
still class him as 'Vermißt' (missing) in action.
Found in silver birch forest 1989.
Recovered in 1991
Owners = Doug/David Arnold and now Paul Allen.
The restoration revealed that this Fw190 most likely crashed from engine
sabotage. The engine was newly installed and the oil lines were found to be
blocked. The engine factories often used prisoner labor, so sabotage
sometimes happened. The restoration is nearly complete, including a new
wing spar to replace the cracked original.
A partial restoration was started in the early 90s, then it was sold to the
Flying Heritage Collection. Much of the restoration was competed in the
UK and the aircraft is now in the US for final work and paint. It's
expected to be completed soon.

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course NASA TTA winning lap April 2012 (2011 Mustang GT 5.0)
First weekend of competition with the car in NASA's Time Trial Class A
(Best lap time wins but lots of cars on track at once).
This is Mid-Ohio's "Club Course" meaning it has the chicane after turn 1.
I have lots of room to improve myself (the driver) and take some time out
of the lap.
This weekend I was competing against a prepared Lotus Exige S240 and a
prepared Porsche Cayman S.
The car was prepared by Rehagen Racing and I would like to thank my sponsor
Ford Motor Company for allowing me the ability to go out and do this.
The second lap of this video was shaping up to be better than the first but
the corner worker in turn 12 didn't wave the caution flag for the Viper who
spun and was in the middle of the racing line. I just wanted to not hit him
in the driver door and ended up with an embarrassingly big tank slapper.
