Audi engineer Leena Gade did much more than just win Audi its tenth 24 Hours of Le Mans in twelve tries—she made history.
Leena was the first woman engineer to ever claim the checkered flag at Le Mans, but how she did it is even more remarkable
in what was easily the most challenging Le Mans for Audi. Read the full article and learn more about this extraordinary woman
whom Audi named their latest R18 TDI® clean diesel
sports-prototype racecar after.

It’s the most famous endurance race in the world. The 24 Hours of Le Mans can be a grueling test of stamina for both
man and machine, and just like with our road vehicles, compromise is not an option. It’s that kind of commitment
that led to back-to-back victories in 2012 and 2013—the first and second ever for a hybrid. The Audi R18 e-tron®
quattro® won with a combination of
less fuel consumption and higher speeds, beating out its competitors on the track and in the efficiency index as well.
No other brand has been so successful at Le Mans in such a short period of time. Audi has now won seven of the last eight
races—12 overall—and has no plans on stopping.
As someone who has shown interest in Audi, you may have heard about our award-winning Audi connect®1 and its ability to utilize Google
