2010 1-2-3 Winning Audi R15-Plus

1-2-3 at Le Mans 24hrs

On Sunday June 13th 2010, HITCO brakes helped Audi to achieve their fourth 1-2-3 finish at the 78th running of the world's greatest endurance race, in the process breaking the record for the furthest distance travelled and making the 2010 race the fastest in Le Mans history.

All three Audi R15-plus cars ran with a single set of HITCO brakes for the duration of the 24 hour race.  Such a feat was only possible following the pioneering work by HITCO and BMW back in 1999 that saw the first ever Le Mans race distance completed on a single set of carbon brakes.

Over in Formula 1, newcomers Lotus Racing and Virgin Racing both chose HITCO as their exclusive brake material and will continue to use HITCO into the 2011 season.
