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.

Megafactories: Toyota Australia Chapter 1
150,000 Vehicles Per Annum Production Capacity
2,500 Team Members
50 Years Australian Manufacturing
7 Astounding Plants
1 Toyota Megafactory
After manufacturing vehicles in Australia for 50 years, it's no surprise
Toyota has grown to be Australia's leading automotive company.
Toyota Australia has just revealed a new state-of-the-art engine plant
built to produce AR hybrid engines for local and export markets, one of
only five engine plants of its kind. But getting there was no mean feat -
and National Geographic Channel was there to capture the journey.
The National Geographic Channel reveals the science, technology and
behind-the-scenes stories that have enabled the company to produce some of
the most innovative vehicles in the world.
From the drawing board to the open road, witness as a stunning
transformation takes place under the hands of skilled technicians,
cutting-edge technology and superior craftsmen.
Toyota Australia Powertrain Department Manager, Mark Taylor, said "I can
honestly say I love my job. I couldn't think of a better place to work and
I'm rapt Toyota is featuring on Megafactories."
National Geographic Channel airs documentary about Toyota's local car
Toyota's vehicle manufacturing plant in Altona, west of Melbourne, is the
subject of a new episode of National Geographic's Megafactories TV series.
The episode in question went to air last night and will be seen again
tonight on Foxtel. To date the series has focused on prestige brands or
high-volume manufacturing capacity -- among them Lamborghini, Caterpillar,
Winnebago, Porsche, John Deere, Harley-Davidson and the Swiss Army Knife.
The Altona plant -- actually seven distinct facilities on a 75 hectare site
-- is a marvel of vertical integration in a small market, and has been
established around an outward-looking (export-driven) business model.
40,000 tonnes of steel are set aside each year for the initial panel
stamping, according to Toyota, and engine castings require 600kg of
aluminium throughput every 30 minutes. Each of the 100,000 or so cars built
each year in Altona represents a parcel of 13,000 parts and 1.7km of
wiring. The 2500 workers in the plant carry out 237 separate processes to
create a car from an amalgam of components -- and the human workers are
complemented by the 280 welding robots that call the plant home.
But what makes the Altona plant special is the place it occupies in the
Toyota world, according to Chris Harrod, Toyota Australia executive
director, manufacturing and purchasing.
"Australia was the first country in the western world where Toyota made an
investment in manufacturing -- a move that played a crucial role in Toyota
becoming the world's number one carmaker," he was quoted saying in a press
"Building cars in Australia exposed the Japanese company to a vastly
different culture and enabled it to learn many lessons that underpinned
global success as it moved into the United States and Europe.
"Today, Toyota is the leading automotive company in the world and we have
been the top-selling car company in Australia for the past decade.
"In addition, we are the only vehicle manufacturer in Australia building a
hybrid car and late last year we opened a new engine plant at Altona, one
of only five of its kind in the world.
The documentary "provides an inside view of the Toyota world most people
will never see first-hand - the innovation and technology behind our Altona
'megafactory'," says Harrod.
"What's clear is the passion and the commitment of everyone involved in
producing Camry, Camry Hybrid, Aurion and four-cylinder engines for local
and export customers."
