Audi took the NFL Films crew to the 2008 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and with the footage gathered created the rather excellent documentary Truth in 24 (it’s still free to view on iTunes and YouTube). It turns out Audi took a crew to last year’s race as well, and soon we’ll be treated to the sequel, Truth in 24 II.
We’ll assume Audi had no idea how exciting that race would end up being, with Allan McNish in one of three R18 Ultras flipping out – literally – just two hours in, and a second Audi crashing out six hours later. After a battle of fuel, tires and pit stops the fight with the Peugeot 908s went to the last lap, making the 2011 race the fourth closest Le Mans run in 79 editions.
A forum member at Ten-Tenths said “The film should be finalised over the next 8 weeks” and that it will deal much more with the race than the backstory. If that timing is correct, it should come just in time to get us ready for this year’s running.
