    Hello Nick,Googling for a 2010 Le Mans shot, I found a picture of two Audi LMP1 racres posing on the Le Mans track in 2010 with a ferries wheel in he background, referring to your Blog. May I use the photo in a small racing car book written by Karl Ludvigsen German Racing Silver’ which I am currently translating into German and updating ?By the way, I am the proud owner of an early TT quattro coupe having covered more than 150.000 miles by now troublefree. I was also editor of the first official Audi customer magazine back in 1965 until 1985 and for along time I owned a 1933 Audi fwd convertible, still existing with an Ingolstadt engineer-collector.Best regards, Halwart
