FIA GT World Cup Audi R8 LMS racer Laurens Vanthoor clipped the inside curb at Macau’s Mandarin Bend at 155 mph, sending him out of control into the wall on the other side of the track, per Motorsport.com.

There’s nothing like the sense of speed you get from a roof-mounted camera. Because it’s dumb and bad to try car surfing on a race car, we’ve got video from on top of an Audi R8 LMS flying down Road America that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Turn up the volume, and let’s enjoy a good V10 howl.

Magnus Racing, the perennial pranksters of the IMSA paddock, are back in the WeatherTech Sportscar Championship with an all-new car.

After repeatedly watching this awesome video footage captured on a wet day at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza in Italy, we are having a nearly impossible time trying to determine exactly what is the best part of the Audi R8 LMS Ultra.
Renowned Alabama-based VW/Audi/Porsche tuner APR will run this year's 24 Hours of Daytona with a brutal-looking Audi R8 LMS, done in a particularly glowering version of their traditional black and white and red all over.
