In the 82nd running of the world's most important endurance race, Marcel Fässler/André Lotterer/Benoît Tréluyer (CH/D/F) and Lucas di Grassi/Marc Gené/Tom Kristensen (BR/E/DK) made for a one-two Audi victory. 

It marked the 13th Le Mans success for the 'brand with the four rings' in only 16 runs, with 'Team Joest' prevailing against massive competition by Le Mans returnee Porsche and, of course, Toyota. 

The race was extremely tough and for a long time completely open. 

"We've seen many exciting races and celebrated great victories at Le Mans but this success has a very special significance," said Professor Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG, following the triumphant finish by the two Audi R18 e-tron quattro cars. 

"We didn't enter this race as favourites and in Porsche and Toyota had two very strong rivals. 

"That we managed to win Le Mans again this time in spite of this is a fantastic achievement by the whole Audi squad. We're tremendously happy and my thanks go to all who have made this success possible."
