Seven-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen was the driver who had the honor of driving the new Audi AG prototype across the finish line to score the first victory for the Audi R10 TDI. In what was termed the "test race" for the newest sportscar prototype developed by Audi, the test ended up making history with the diesel powered engine.

"Today, Audi had the courage to bring out the car in what is a very young project," said Kristensen. "To conquer Sebring in our test for our big race which is Le Mans, that is what makes the headline today. I am just happy to be part of it."

A good place to make history is at Sebring International Raceway at the historic 3.7-mile circuit in the March Classic: the 54th Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

The season-opening race in the 2006 American Le Mans Series calendar saw an increase in fans over the four days of activity, from Wednesday's first practice session through today's race.

Sharing today's triumphant victory were Allan McNish and Rinaldo Capello. For Kristensen, it was a win to savor as he became the first driver to earn four Sebring victories.

Brilliant, seen it lastnight. Make's some unusual sound on the straights, more of a boom than screem. Biela had a spin aswell, and lucky to get away with it.
