Audi returns to Le Mans in 2023, enters the Dakar Rally for ’22, and leaves Formula E
Audi has recently completed a review of its motorsport programs and has made a series of moves as a result. The big news is that Audi will return to the Le Mans 24 Hours with a new Le Mans Daytona hybrid (LMDh) car in 2023. The LMDh cars, based on the Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2) cars, are effectively the replacement for IMSA’s current Daytona Prototype international (Dpi) cars. The LMDh cars will feature manufacturer-produced body kits and drivetrains, along with a standard hybrid system that features a Williams Advanced Engineering battery and Bosch electric motor.
