Audi readers’ evening podcast

On Saturday October 8, Motor Sport hosted a readers’ evening in association with Audi UK at the Audi quattro rooms in West London. Star guests included Le Mans winners Allan McNish, Tom Kristensen and Audi factory team engineers Howden ‘H’ Haynes and Leena Gade.

The documentary Truth in 24 – that everyone watched at the start of the evening – follows the factory Audi team as they fight through the gruelling race in the knowledge that their car is technically slower that its rival from Peugeot. In one of the most nail-biting Le Mans in recent history, the Audi team works together to overcome its rivals, and it is engineer Howden’s inspired tyre-change decision 23 and half hours into the race that helps the number two car to victory.

After watching the film editor Damien Smith sat down with all four as well as editor-in-chief Nigel Roebuck. Here is the recording of the discussion…

    Great poddie.

    By the way, who’s been breathing into the mic all the time in the background? Feels like I’l listening to “Dark Side of the Moon” all the time (heart beat intro I mean)! PF mixed with Le Mans 24 Hours – golden.

    Great podcast as usual. Having difficulty finding a place that sells the “Truth in 24″ dvd. Can you help?

    I agree with Iberian. Unfortunately I couldn’t bear to listen for more than 15 minutes because of that horrible heavy breathing into the microphone. I believe it’s Nigel. He sometimes does the same thing on the regular monthly podcast. Damian, for Christ’s sake, turn off Nigel’s mic if he’s just going to breathe and sniffle into it. BTW, the Goodwood podcast was brilliant!

    Lay off Nigel guys, that’s what 50 years of sponsors’ fags does to you. Nice podcast though, pity we can’t get to see this film in Oz.Come on Audi, do yourselves a favour and release it for general distribution.

    I don’t mind about the breathing effect, it just reminded me of Pink Floyd sound effects!

    Lovely new website by the way, forgot to mention that before. Much more user-friendly. Good job.
